Mission Statement

Hospice Care affirms life and realizes that what the dying patient needs most is relief from distressing symptoms of disease, the security of a caring environment, sustained expert care, the assurance that neither the patient nor the family will be abandoned.

Philosophy

With the realization that dying is a phase of living, Hospice Care affirms life. Hospice Care exists to provide holistic care for the patient in the last phases of an incurable disease, neither postponing nor hastening death, but enhancing the final phase of life to its greatest potential.

Hospice Care provides a caring, multi-disciplinary community of nurses, home care aides, therapists, social workers, physicians and clergy attending to the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of the patient as well as the family as a unit. The patient’s dignity and autonomy are of primary concern.

It is the hope and belief of Hospice Care that the support, comfort and care provided to the dying patient and members of the family will allow them the freedom to spend together and to experience the pending death in a manner that is meaningful for them.
