Provide an individualized program of physical, emotional, and spiritual care for people in the last phases of life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. Our program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the patient, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient and family/caregivers. Hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family/caregiver, lifestyle, values and wishes.
The mission of Hospice is to provide holistic care for the patient and his or her family. Hospice seeks to keep the patient comfortable and as free of pain as possible. Hospice recognizes that dying is part of the normal process of life. Hospice philosophy does not speed up nor slow down the dying process, but rather is about making the most of a person's final days. Through hospice care and its team approach, patients and their families can journey through the process of losing a loved one with dignity.
