Hospice is a program of care and support for people who are terminally ill and their families. The focus of care is quality of life and comfort. Hospice is not only for people with cancer, but for multiple end of life conditions. Hospice is designed to bring comfort (palliative care), not curing an illness. A specially trained team of professionals and caregivers provide care for the “whole person,” including physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Services typically include physical care, counseling, drugs, equipment, and supplies for the terminal illness and related conditions. Care is generally given in the home with support available to family caregivers. 


If you qualify for hospice care, our care coordinator will meet with you and your family to set up a plan of care that meets your needs.

You and your family members are part of a team that may also include:

  • Doctors
  • Chaplains
  • Pharmacists
  • Social Workers
  • Nurses or Nurse Practitioners
  • Hospice Aids

In addition, a hospice nurse and doctor are on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to give you and your family support and care when you need it.

Hospice Care Helps You:

  • Maximize quality of life
  • Stay in comfort of your home
  • Be surrounded by those you love
  • Be treated with dignity, compassion and respect
