Mission Statement

The Hospice Agency provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, an practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the unique differences in family/caregiver, lifestyle, values, and wishes. Utilizing an interdisciplinary group approach of physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, homemakers, hospice aides, volunteers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors, and others, the Hospice agency provides palliative care in the home, short term inpatient services, mobilization and coordination of ancillary services, and bereavement support.
