Hospice care is a special way of caring for a patient with a terminal illness who no longer receives a curative treatment. The hospice philosophy uses a team approach to coordinate care which includes the patient, family, nurses, nurses’ aides, social workers, physicians, clergy, and volunteers.
Our services deliver palliative and comfort care while placing a special emphasis on the patient’s quality of life.
