What is Hospice?

Hospice is not a place; it is a concept of care. Hospice is about caring when cure is not possible. Hospice is about maximizing the quality of life during the last stages and is provided as a complement to professional medical care.

Our Vision

Every life lived to the fullest.

Our Values:

Respect – we support others honestly, openly and fairly.

Compassion – we listen and serve with sensitivity, empathy and concern.

Excellence – we commit to everyday improvement in all that we do.

Our Mission

We help people live in their homes and communities by delivering the caring support that they and their families need.
