Hospice care is a specialty health care service that focuses on quality of life for people and their caregivers who are experiencing an advanced, life-limiting illness. Hospice care provides compassionate care for people in the last phases of an incurable disease so they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. While individual goals are unique, priority is placed on effective pain control and symptom management. Care is provided by a team of professionals specially trained to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the individual and their caregivers and families.
“You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”
