Hospice is not a place. It’s a philosophy of care. Our team is dedicated to providing this care wherever they consider home: in the home they’ve owned for years, in a nursing home, or in an assisted living facility. Hospice is tailored to fit the patient’s and family’s unique situations. The goal of hospice with our interdisciplinary team is comfort, and an emphasis is placed on quality of life through terminal illness and death. Our promise to you is to care for body, mind, and spirit. We promise to provide care that is comforting and compassionate. We promise to respect patient and family choices. We promise to be accepting and supportive of patients, wherever they are in life’s journey.
“During the time that I’ve worked in Hospice, I’ve seen that death does not have to be painful – or even feared. Feeling sadness is just an indication that you care and it doesn’t need to be viewed as a negative emotion. For all the tears I’ve shed, there have been ten times the smiles and laughter, which I’ve shared with my patients and their loved ones as well. I would say I have been quite blessed.” – Hospice Nurse
We felt like VIPs’ when we came there. Everyone is great! We are in our 70’s now and we finally feel like we have a place to stay.Patients from Henning
