Abbey Road Hospice was developed based on the compassion and respect for the process of completing one's life journey with dignity and grace. At Abbey Road Hospice, complete hospice care involves serving not only the patient but also the family, caregivers and community that surround this individual. Services are tailored to our patient's wishes including medical care in addition to spiritual, family and bereavement support.
What sets Abbey Road Hospice apart is our commitment to offering the highest level of patient care. Our employee enrichment programs are intended to filter out the non-caregivers and reduce turnover. Employees work closely with the patient's family and doctors to ensure the best possible assistance is given to make the patient's life comfortable. All Abbey Road staff members are required to be involved in regular community service projects. This ensures that they are giving back to the community and will develop not only compassion for their patients but also a passion for their work.
