“You matter until the last moment of your life…and we will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but live until you die.”

The hospice team may include any combination of an attending physician, medical director, home health aide, social worker, spiritual counselor, and volunteers. Each person on the hospital team is committed to individualized, compassionate care.
Hospice is a special way of caring for people who are in the final stages of life. The goal of hospice is to provide emotional, physical, and spiritual support to the individual and their family.

Hospice services are paid for by Medicare, Medical Assistance, and most private insurances.
