About Fairview Home Care and Hospice-Lakes Area
11725 Stinson Ave, Chisago City, MN 55013, US
Our Mission: We offer an exceptional experience for patients and families focused on their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
When life expectancy is limited, Fairview Hospice staff and volunteers will help patients and caregivers focus on improving the quality of their remaining days. Hospice provides medical, emotional, social and spiritual care. We bring these services to the familiar setting of patient's own homes whenever possible. The same kind of care may also be given at a long-term care site, a group home, an assisted living site or a residential hospice.
We'll work with your schedule.
