Compassionate care of clients and their family members is the mission of our hospice team. It is our goal to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of our valued clients and their families, providing a secure environment and balanced care for life. We strive to be responsive to each individual’s special needs and universal desire for independence, dignity, and purpose. Success is determined in terms of comfort and support provided to the individual. Hospice treats the person, not the disease, providing emotional support, with pain and symptom control. Meeting the needs and challenges of each client begins with a sensitive and professional approach to people whose needs are changing. Our philosophy recognizes these unique needs and responds with compassionate life-enriching program and environment. Our commitment to this mission is the soul efforts every day we provide care and comfort to our clients and their families.
