Hospice Compassus is a proud partner of We Honor Veterans.

American’s Veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country and it is never too late to give them a hero’s welcome home. Hospice staff may provide the last opportunity for Veterans to feel that their service was not in vain, and that they are appreciated. Simple acts of gratitude at the end-of-life can make up for a lack of appreciation or recognition during the Veteran’s lifetime, especially for those Veterans who were never welcomed home or thanked for their service.

Mission Statement

Compassus is dedicated to quality excellence, compassionate care, and providing comfort and support to patients and their families. Our services, including home health, palliative care and hospice, are centered on improving the quality of life for our patients and their families. We deliver personalized care that puts our patients’ goals and preferences at the forefront of their individual care plan, regardless of their condition. From home health services that help patients maintain their independence, to palliative care focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness at any stage, to hospice care that assures end-of-life physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are met, our colleagues are committed to serving patients and their families with heartfelt compassion.

Description

Hospice Compassus provides palliative and supportive care to people and their families who are facing an incurable illness - and who have a life expectancy of six months or less if the illness runs its normal course. Most of us are familiar with the aggressive approach to medical care - but when medical treatment cannot cure your illness, we will guide you through the rest of your journey.
