To provide a coordinated, continuing and comprehensive range of hospice services that attend to the physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs of the terminally ill and their families.
To the provide the highest level of care.
To be professional, ethical and trustworthy
To be committed to ongoing performance improvement in our delivery of services.
To provide dignity
The purpose of Nightingale Hospice Care, Inc. is to provide physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support to terminally ill patients, as well as their families and loved ones, while assisting patients and families to live with dignity and comfort as they cope with end of life issues. We believe:
Hospice affirms life.
Hospice recognizes dying as a process and so our care provides comfort rather than cure.
Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death.
Hospice helps the terminally ill person maintain quality of life and supports the family.
Hospice is primarily a home care program, but services may also be provided in a hospital or nursing home. A hospice team helps the patient and family make informed decisions about caregiving, teaches the necessary skills for "hands-on" care and helps with the approaching and actual death. Hospice also offers help through the bereavement period.
Nightingale Hospice provides services throughout 50 Counties in the State of Indiana with Headquarters located in Carmel, Indiana.

They seem to really care about the people they take care of. When I have had concerns about patients I felt they listed to me. The volunteer "coordinator" job does as some turnover issues. When it's vacant though I still feel that the communication is excellent with the program itself. I think it's a great place to volunteer.
