Mission Statement

Care and Compassion When You Need It Most

Description

At Health Link Hospice we are committed to making a lasting difference in the lives of patients diagnosed with a life-limiting illness by enabling them and their loved ones to live each day as fully and comfortably as possible. Our team of caring, professional staff and volunteers will pay careful attention to the medical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of every patient including their family and friends.

Hospice Care, often referred to as palliative care or comfort care, refers to the special attention needed by patients with a terminal illness. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death; instead, it focuses on comforting the patient by addressing issues causing physical and emotional pain. Hospice care differs from other forms of health care in that it not only addresses the needs of the patient, but also the needs of his or her family. The goals of Health Link Hospice care are to improve the quality of life for the patient and to support his or her loved ones.
