Hospice Care Program

Hospice Philosophy is a system of specialized care that provides support and assistance for the most difficult part of the journey. It joins modern technologic methods of pain and symptom management for a sensitive, respectful, non-invasive palliative level of care.

Focus

Our focus is the Patient-The Family / Caregiver

Autonomy

We preserve the patient’s right to freedom to choose their plan of care and decision making for this stage in their life.

Comfort

We are committed to maintaining the quality of a patient’s remaining life including but not limited to pain management, nutrition, participation, and other factors that affect comfort.

Dignity

We encourage “living life to its fullest” and maintaining maximum independence. We support ongoing contact with the people and things that play an important role in the patient’s life.
