Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We strive to give our patients the highest quality of life possible, while also providing their family with emotional and spiritual support.
Comfort versus Curative
Hospice care should be considered when a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less is given, or when a child is suffering from an advanced illness. We are here to provide the necessary care and resources to improve their pain and symptoms.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Though anyone can request hospice care, most patients are referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency and will be admitted under a physician’s orders. We offer an online hospice referral right here on our website.
