The goal of hospice is to enable patients to continue an alert, pain-free life and to manage other symptoms so that their last days may be spent with dignity.

Most hospice care is given in the home with family members serving as the main caregivers. And our highly trained field staff are always responsive to our patients' individualized care.

Being a hospice patient does not mean giving up on life; home care simply needs to be more thorough and comprehensive.
