Mission Statement

Bristol Hospice is graciously committed to our mission that all patients and families entrusted to our care will be treated with the highest level of compassion, respect, and quality of care.

Description

Our Bristol Hospice programs provide hospice services to meet the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of our patients and their families/caregivers. An interdisciplinary group of professionals and volunteers develops an individualized plan of care which includes, as appropriate, the following services: nursing, physicians, home health aides, counseling, spiritual support, therapy, dietary, volunteers, durable medical equipment, supplies, and bereavement services.

Specialty Programs: Guided by these values and research, Bristol Hospice is honored to be an innovator; utilizing non-pharmacological methods of comfort and going above & beyond what is expected by hospice care standards, through our specialty care programs. These Bristol programs, such as "Sweet Dreams" and "Bright Moments" are especially helpful to those struggling with the effects of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Through these programs, we hope to give "Light to Life" for each patient at their end-of-life. In so doing, we have the honor to provide additional methods of care, comfort and support for the patient, their families, caregivers and loved ones.
