Mission Statement

To improve care for those facing life-limiting illness through direct support of patients and their families, public education, and public advocacy.

Description

Capital Hospice is not a place; it is a comprehensive set of services that comes to you. Hospice services are provided in the patient’s home setting, whether that is a private residence, apartment, long-term care facility, assisted living or nursing home.

In addition to managing pain and symptoms, we offer spiritual counseling, nutritional counseling, grief counseling, physical and occupational therapy as needed, prescription medications, medical supplies and equipment, homemaker services, and occasional respite care, as specified in your individualized Plan of Care. Volunteers are a core part of the team offering caregiver respite, companionship, errands, or professional services like massage, pet, or music therapy.
