Mission Statement

To provide compassionate care to those we serve during the end of life's journey through our commitment to clinical excellence and uncompromising service.

Description

Hospice is not a place; it is a philosophy of care that enhances life as it nears its end for terminally ill patients and their families. When medicine cannot provide a cure, hospice care offers comfort and assistance to help maintain a better quality of life for the patient and family.

This type of attention, called palliative care, involves the aggressive treatment of physical, emotional and spiritual pain and symptoms. It focuses on enhancing patient comfort and quality of life, and provides psycho-social and spiritual support for both patients and their loved ones. Gentiva believes that through sensitive, appropriate care and the support of a caring community, patients and families can begin to prepare to face the inevitable challenges ahead.

The commitment and spirit of Gentiva team members is embodied in one simple phrase, "YCCOM: You Can Count on Me."
