At Crossroads Hospice, we believe that the end-of-life experience is a special one and our goal is to provide the greatest quality of life possible for our patients. During these difficult times, our home patients find it difficult to get out to the salon or the barber to get their hair trimmed. Everyone has been affected by COVID-19 but our home patients more so as they are all high risk, and many have physical limitations that prevent easy transport to a nail salon. As able-bodied adults, we thoroughly enjoy the benefits of a nail salon day (e.g., feeling pampered, feeling pretty, chatting, taking care of a basic personal grooming need, etc.) and our hospice patients should have the same experience. If you are a trained manicurist and are looking for a way to give back to your community, our patients could greatly use your services!

The mission of Crossroads Hospice is to provide highly competent, comprehensive, and compassionate hospice services to persons experiencing a life-limiting illness and to their families. The hospice is committed to keeping patients in their home environment, whether that is in their own private residence or in a nursing home.
Crossroads Hospice is a community based organization, licensed by the state and certified by both Medicare and the Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP). From our inception, we have had one philosophy--expect more. Since 1995, we’ve been busy reinventing hospice by finding ways to spend more time with patients and families; and developing ideas to help them get the most from this delicate life experience. Crossroads is there when patients and their families need us most. Our patient-to-staff ratio is among the best in hospice. As a result, we provide more daily visits to our patients than anyone in hospice care. Our staff consists of doctors, nurses, aides, chaplains, social workers, bereavement coordinators, volunteer coordinators and volunteers, all working as a team to meet the needs of the hospice patient and their family.
