ission Statement: The hospice patient is unique; they set the pace and philosophy for their own care. As the specialists for our patients and families we are responsible to see those goals are respected and met. Living our philosophy of care we, as a company, will be in a position to lead our community in hospice education. By integrating the talents and experience of our excellent staff, we will set a new standard of care.
Although we recognize that the individual meets the criteria for a six month prognosis it is not required by Medicare that they give up hope. Nor must they give up treatment for their illness and symptoms such as medications and therapies. We are here to help our patients find their concept of a good, peaceful and content end-of-life experience.
