Mission Statement

Why not? That's a question we ask ourselves every day. In fact it is the question responsible for our beginning and has made us what we are today. Because "why not?" helps us find new and better ways to deliver hospice care to patients, families, caregivers, and health care professionals alike. It helps us connect with our communities, share our knowledge, be accessible 24/7, innovate, lead, and raise the bar. In fact "why not?" has helped us create a hospice experience we believe is second to none...and are confident you'll agree. Expect more from us. We do.

Description

The primary focus of hospice care is quality of life through comfort, dignity and understanding. It encompasses the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of terminally ill patients, while supporting the well-being of caregivers. Whether provided in the home, hospital, long-term care facility, or anywhere else, hospice is a compassionate way to deliver care and supportive services to terminally ill patients. And, it is provided on the basis of need, not the ability to pay.

But while hospice is a very important and meaningful type of care, it is significantly underutilized, and largely misunderstood. So, in 1995, we set out to change that...to help more people access hospice and help more people experience a better way. That's why we developed one-of-a-kind programs like The Ultimate Gift©, the Watch Program©, and alternative therapies like pet, aroma and music. Programs that help patients, families, caregivers, and health care professionals take comfort. Programs that create legacies, fulfill dreams, support communities, inspire smiles, and instill confidence. At Crossroads, our approach is completely holistic and our team is 100% dedicated to giving you more.
