Mission Statement

Adventa/Amedisys Hospice provides an individualized program of physical,
emotional, spiritual and practical care for people in the last phases of an incurable
disease, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is
reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the
dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible,
and in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient and
family/caregiver. Hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences
in the family/caregiver, lifestyle, values and wishes. Hospice affirms life.
