What Is Hospice?


Care in the Home, in the Community, and at Hospice

Hospice is both a “place” and “type” of care. Hospice is a healthcare facility providing 24-7 expert palliative care in a welcoming home-like environment. Hospice palliative care is about relieving pain and suffering while improving the quality of life for those who are living with and dying from a life-limiting illness. Hospice palliative care is helpful not only when a person is approaching death, but also during the earlier stages of an illness. The goal of Hospice palliative care is to enhance the quality of life during the end-of-life journey for the individual and their loved ones.

Hospice care is provided by an integrated multidisciplinary team of specialized physicians, nurses, personal support workers, spiritual care providers, psychosocial clinicians, and volunteers.

Our Community. Our Hospice. Now is our time.
