Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We respect each of our patients who are here to receive end-of-life care, and always take their goals and wishes into consideration when providing care. We treat everyone with peace, love, and respect while with us, working hard to manage their pain and symptoms.
Comfort Versus Curative
Hospice care is typically suggested when a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less is made, or if a child is suffering from a life-limiting illness. We provide compassion and respect to each of our patients and their families while receiving our services.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
A patient may be referred to us by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency and will be admitted under a physician’s direction. Anyone can request our services, and we offer an online hospice referral right here on our website for your convenience.
