Mission Statement

At Compassionate Care Hospice, we provide a patient-centered approach to care and support for people at the end of life and their families. It is care focused on maintaining dignity, increasing quality of life, and providing comfort.

Description

We know that each life is precious and tells an incredible story, and it is our mission to honor our patients’ lives and allow them to live each day to its fullest. Whether we’re delivering care at a patient’s bedside, supporting our clinical team or educating the community on the hospice benefit, this isn’t just a job - it’s our higher calling.

Through our team of physicians, nurses, aids, social workers, chaplains, volunteers, and other health professionals, we provide regular visits for pain management, symptom control, education, emotional and spiritual support, companionship, personal care, medical equipment, medications, and bereavement support. It's truly about meeting our patients where they are with care that is right for them.
