Mission Statement

Our Hospice mission is to manage terminal illness so that patients may live as fully as possible until they die. Methods to accomplish this include:

~ Offering support and education to families and caregivers as they care for their dying loved ones.

~ Helping patients, families and caregivers identify their own strengths and healthy coping skills.

~ Providing support services which recognize the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of living with dying.

Patient and caregiver participation is encouraged regarding decision-making about surroundings, therapeutic management, and terminal care. Emphasis is placed on the quality of remaining life with respect for individual lifestyles and belief systems.

Description
