What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is a program of services that provides comfort and care to patients who choose supportive treatments to treat their terminal illness when their disease is incurable.


Hospice care is provided by a hospice   team of your physician, Nurses, Social Workers Chaplains, Nurse Aides and   other healthcare professionals and volunteers. Team members schedule   intermittent visits throughout the week to help the family meet the needs of   the patient.   

Team Members report the condition of the   patient to the doctor, provide personal care like bathing, provide emotional   support and if the patient wishes, spiritual care either from their pastor or   our chaplain.   

The Hospice team assembles the   equipment, medication and supplies needed to provide care and comfort to the   patient.

A Professional Registered Nurse is “On   Call” 24/7 to answer questions and if need it to make an unscheduled visit to   solve problems.

The main goal of Hospice Care is to improve the patient’s level of comfort while keeping them as active as possible, for as long as possible.
