Continuum Care Hospice'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.
Hospice is a concept of caring derived from medieval times, symbolizing a place where travelers, pilgrims and the sick, wounded or dying could find rest and comfort. The contemporary hospice offers a comprehensive program of care to patients and families facing a life limiting illness.
Continuum Care Hospice was founded upon the concept of providing the best care by the best staff, including a team of volunteers. Other core team members include a Medical Director, Registered Nurse, Hospice Aide, Medical Social Worker, Spiritual Care Coordinator, Bereavement Coordinator and a Music Therapist.
