Why Choose Hospice?

Hospice is a supportive home based service, focused on pain and symptom management for individuals with a life limiting illness.  The hospice focus is to treat the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) and not just the disease.

Hospice enables patients to remain alert and carry on a symptom free lifestyle.  Hospice affirms the human spirit and allows the patient dignity, comfort and support when aggressive medicine is no longer desired and appropriate.  Hospice seeks to support the entire family unit.
