Brookdale’s Mission is...Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity. Every day is an opportunity for Brookdale associates to deeply connect with people in a profound and personal way.
The philosophy at Brookdale Hospice is that life is much more than physical health; it also includes the health of the human spirit. When physical health begins to fail, the nurturing of the spirit becomes critical for maintaining the dignity of the individual.
Hospice is a philosophy of care focused on comfort and quality of life at the end of life. It is designed to treat the whole person emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically by providing comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. As part of the process, family members also receive care and support - all provided by a team of specially trained professionals and volunteers. Bereavement services for family continue for one year after the patient has died.
Brookdale Hospice offers a full spectrum of care designed to respect the dignity of the individual. Our care is skilled and compassionate in its delivery with the goal of providing comfort and freedom from pain. At the same time, it aims to provide the patient with as much independence and control as possible, for as long as possible.
