About Southern Care Hospice
1923 S Liberty Dr, Bloomington, IN 47403, US
Southern Care Hospice is an affiliate of CURO Health Services and its family of hospice care providers. The mission of CURO Health Services and its hospice affiliates is to honor life and offer compassion to individuals and their caregivers when facing a life-limiting illness.
We see each individual as more than a patient. Our skilled professionals and volunteers design an all-encompassing program, customized to each patient that addresses not only the physical needs but also the emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and family. Counseling and education about disease management and the dying process are provided to the family unit in conjunction with patient care.
Our hospice philosophy includes an individualized course of treatment based on the patient’s wishes, the family’s needs and the complex array of medical, emotional and social issues which accompany a terminal diagnosis. Our service offerings include access to a network of community resources specifically arranged to provide comfort, reduce anxiety and allow quality time to be spent with the loved one.
