Hospice care is specially designed for adults, children and infants whose illness cannot be cured. Hospice is a supportive, life-affirming approach to meeting the special needs of terminally ill people, their families and their caregivers.

Hospice is a six-month, not a 6-hour, service. Our goal is to assist the patient and their loved ones to be as comfortable, aware and as involved as possible throughout this difficult time. Hospice care neither hastens nor postpones death. Our interdisciplinary team places emphasis on providing care that will meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and family.

Hospice care, typically provided in the person's home or in a home-like setting, focuses on both the patient and family:

  • To control pain and other uncomfortable symptoms
  • To treat the physical, emotional and spiritual needs
