Mission Statement

We at Symponia (translated compassion in Greek), dedicate ourselves to providing the most compassionate care to both the patient and their families, to ease the fear and grief associated with a life-limiting illness, to provide the physical comfort, emotional and spiritual support, and to make the most of every moment.

Description

Over 100 years! That is the cumulative amount of time the founding members of Symponia have spent in service and care of the sick and dying. Age brings tolerance and wisdom and we, at Symponia, offer intelligent care and supportive compassion. Our very name translated means Compassion, and this name was chosen to reflect our mutual vision of humble and tender care. We understand the rhythm of life and death, and we are comfortable and confident, no matter the circumstances, that we can provide you and your family the care your loved one deserves. We consider it an honor and a privilege to be called to this service.
