Mission Statement

We are passionate about our mission to bring comfort and relief into the lives of those who need it most. Every day, our caring and compassionate staff works wonders in the lives of hundreds of terminally ill patients and their families. They replace suffering with comfort, despondence with good cheer, and despair with hope. We have earned the confidence of medical professionals and the eternal gratitude of thousands of patients and family members.

Description

Hospice is an approach in care that has greatly improved the way our society and particularly the medical community perceives end of life issues. The philosophy of hospice is simple and compelling: Individuals with life-limiting medical conditions should be made as comfortable as possible, and have their quality of life maximized, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. In practice, hospice focuses on managing and alleviating pain and symptoms while maintaining the patient’s dignity. Hospice fosters a love and appreciation for family and life experiences, and helps patients accept their situation with hope and encouragement rather than despair. Because no two situations are alike, hospice caregivers coordinate a plan of care that is specifically designed to meet the needs of each individual. As part of a comprehensive care approach, hospice care also addresses the logistical and emotional needs of the patient’s family. The hospice team of caregivers includes physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, therapists, volunteers - and most importantly - family members themselves. Because it is an approach, not a place, hospice care can be provided at home, at an assisted living facility, at a long-term care setting, or even at a hospital.
