Mission Statement

The mission of Traditions Health is to promote health and independence in the patients we serve, to attract and retain exceptional healthcare professionals and to conduct our business with compassion and integrity.

Description

Traditions Health is committed to improving the quality of life for individuals experiencing a life-limiting illness.

Traditions Health provides services meeting the needs of patients and their families during this critical time, when every moment is special.

Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Pain control and symptom management.

  • Support and the assurance that patients and family members are not alone. Fear, loneliness, anxiety, worry and feelings of helplessness may send a family into despair...Hospice can prevent or relieve some of that despair.

  • When curative care is no longer appropriate, our Hospice program enables a terminally ill person to decide how and where the rest of his or her life should be lived. Hospice care or palliative care focuses on comfort and quality of life.

  • Being in control keeps spirits up so that a person can make the most of each day and concentrate on living.


Persons with a life-limiting illness receive benefits from Traditions Health that are not available in a traditional health care setting of curative care.
