For Every Meaningful Moment

When a loved one is dealing with a life-limiting or terminal illness, family members face unique and difficult challenges as well. Guardian Angels + Elim Home Care & Hospice Services is here for you during this time.

Hospice offers special care for people who are in the final stages of life or who wish to focus on comfort rather than a cure. The goal of hospice care is to provide emotional, physical, and spiritual support to the individual and their family, whether in the person’s home or in a care center. The hospice team may include any combination of attending physician, medical director, home health aide, social worker, spiritual counselor, and volunteers. Each person on the hospice team is committed to individualized, compassionate care.

We strive to improve quality of life by managing pain and other symptoms and by providing services to support your loved one’s unique needs. These may include needs related to cancer, advanced heart disease, lung disease, end-stage dementia, and other chronic conditions. Typically, hospice services are paid for by Medicare, Medical Assistance, and most private insurance programs.

At Guardian Angels + Elim Home & Hospice Services, we are committed to the three Cs:

  • Christian mission
  • Community-based
  • Continuity of care

We are proud to be a We Honor Veterans program provider. Our local employees serve residents throughout the greater Twin Cities metropolitan area.
