Mission Statement

Hospice of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County is committed to providing quality medical, emotional, spiritual and social support to patients and families who face a life-limiting illness regardless of diagnosis, prognosis or treatment.

Description

Hospice provides professional, palliative care and supportive services to individuals who are no longer seeking treatment toward a cure. This care is provided to the patient in their place of residence and without regard to ability to pay. Emphasis is placed on addressing the needs of both the patient and the family, minimizing the physical discomforts of the patient's illness, fostering communication and understanding, and helping replace anxiety with an appreciation and acceptance of life's natural progression. The highly-trained, professional staff at Hospice, is under the guidance of the patient's physician. Nurses, Certified Nurse Assistants, and social workers provide comprehensive care and upon request, chaplains and Hospice patient/family volunteersare available to the patient and his or her family. Bereavement care is available to the family following the death of their loved one. At Hospice our staff adds life to every day.
