Our Services

Hospice is so much more than most people think it is. Learn about the philosophy of hospice and its many benefits below.

What services do we offer?

The hospice benefit can be understood as empathetic and holistic care for individuals facing a life-limiting illness or injury. Hospice adopts an interdisciplinary, team-based approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to patients and their families. Everyone deserves the right to die pain-free, on their own terms, and with the knowledge that their family will receive the support they need.

Levels of Care

Hospice can be provided wherever patients call home. Within the hospice benefit, multiple levels of care are available. The most common level of care is routine home, providing care from an interdisciplinary care team according to a patient's unique needs in the patient's home setting. General inpatient care is selected when patients' needs exceed what is possible in their normal place of residence. Continuous care is chosen when around-the-clock service is required for a certain period of time. Finally, respite care is provided to alleviate the caretaking burdens on patients' families and friends.
