Mission Statement

The gift of hospice is priceless, giving patients facing a life-limiting illness the freedom to live ALL the days of their lives by offering comfort, dignity, quality of life and time. At Gentle Care Hospice, we take the time to understand the specific needs of each of our patients and their loved ones to ensure patient comfort and enhance quality of life.

Description

Hospice is not a place; it’s a philosophy of care that enhances life as it nears its end for the patients and their families and friends. Even when medicine cannot provide a cure, it can offer comfort, care and assistance that can help maintain a better quality of life for the patient. This type of attention, called palliative care, involves the aggressive treatment of physical and emotional pain and symptoms. It focuses on enhancing a patient’s comfort and improving quality of life.
