Mission Statement

Affinity Care's mission is to provide the terminally ill patient and their loved ones with the support and care they require to live their lives comfortably. Our Hospice team strives to enable the patient and family to maintain dignity and quality of life. Our goal is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort. We strive to empower the patient and family by providing them with the tools, information and support they need to make informed decisions. We provide ongoing support for family and friends for as long as it is needed. We believe that Hospice care should be available to any and all persons with an illness for which there is no cure or for persons who elect not to attempt a cure, resulting in a limited life expectancy.

Description

Affinity Care is a small hospice company with big goals. We are dedicated to providing the best care to our patients and their families. Through our volunteer program we strive to enhance the quality of life for our patients through office assistance, companionship visits, pet volunteers, veteran support, respite for families and more.
