Mission Statement

Trinity Hospice’s mission is to provide dignity and quality of life through death and beyond with compassion, passion and commitment. Focus of care is directed toward patient goals for the remainder of life and is adjusted and refocused as the condition of the patient changes. Nurses, social workers, home health aides, volunteers, bereavement counselors, chaplains, hospice physicians and management of Trinity Hospice provide a dynamic, holistic interdisciplinary team to serve the patient, family, caregiver and significant other which is recognized as the "unit of care." The Trinity Hospice team will continuously strive to meet and exceed the unique and very individualized spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of the "patient/unit of care" during the dying process, continuing through the bereavement (thirteen months) period that follows the death of the patient.

In addition to pain and symptom management problems, hospice addresses emotional, social, and spiritual concerns of both patients and their families.
