To serve and support people with compassion and care during the end of life journey.
Hospice provides support for persons in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and as comfortably as possible. Hospice recognizes dying as part of the normal process of living and focuses on maintaining the quality of remaining life. Hospice affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice exists in the hope and belief that though appropriate care, and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them. Hospice, to the maximum extent possible, accepts patients regardless of ability to pay.
