Compassion, Peace and Dignity
It is our mission to treat our patients and family with compassion, peace, and dignity. We work with symptom and pain management that allow end-of-life patients to have the highest quality of life possible.
Comfort Versus Curative
Consider hospice when there is a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less, (a disease that has run its normal course) or if a child is suffering from a life-limiting illness. We are here to provide your loved one with high quality care as they enter the last stages of their illness.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
There are a variety of people and facilities that can refer your loved one to receive hospice care, including: clergy, family, friend or other home care agency and will be admitted under a physician’s direction. An online hospice referral can be conveniently completed through our site.
