CAN HOSPICE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Hospice care can dramatically and positively impact quality of life. The goal is to empower the individual, by providing knowledge and information, to facilitate decision-making. Our clinical staffs are experts on pain control, and symptom management. They are committed to education of patients and caregivers.

WHO PROVIDES CARE
Care is delivered by a team of professionals who address the patient's needs on medical, physical, emotional and spiritual levels. The team consists of the patient's attending physician, hospice medical director, registered nurse, home health aide, social worker, chaplain and trained volunteers.

HOW IS HOSPICE CARE STARTED
Help is only one phone call away. The attending physician, patient, family member, friends, clergy, social workers, hospital discharge planner, or any person concerned with a patient's well being, can make a referral. If you call us, we will contact the patient's physician for approval. Services will be started immediately.
