Mission Statement

Lighthouse Hospice is dedicated to providing hospice care at a level of excellence that will give new expresion to Dr. Cicely Saunders' definition of hospice as "precise attention to detail."

- We are dedicated to expert symptiom control so patients may discover their own quality of life in the days left to them.

- We are dedicated to affirming life and dignity while neither hastening nor postponing death.

-We are dedicated to relieving the stress of the patients and families as they struggle with meaningful ways of saying good-bye.

-We are dedicated to indentifying and educating a supportive community that will be sensitive to the needs of the dying patient and his/her loved ones.

-We are dedicatrd to offering paliative care to all terminally ill patients and support to those patients and their families without regard for diagnosis, gender, sexual orientation, rece, creed, disability, age, place of residence, or ability to pay.

-We are dedicated to honoring and respecting the core values and wishes of the patients and families we serve.

Description

"Hospice services embrace the physical, spiritual, and psychosocial needs of both the patient and the family. The emphasis is on palliative (comfort care) rather than curative treatment of the disease. Palliatie care utilizes those therapies and treatments, which enhance patient comfort and establish relief of pain and distress. The goal of hospice is to help the patient live qualitatively all the way to the end through appropriate medical care, adequate emotional, psychological, and spiritual support."
