Hospice Gives Hope

Hospice Life Care

Hospice Life Care is a not-for-profit community hospice that offers comprehensive and compassionate care to those in the final stages of life. Our primary goal is to provide patients and their families with the care and support they need while ensuring that their days are as comfortable and peaceful as possible.

Our Philosophy

Hospice Life Care recognizes that the dying process is a natural part of living and focuses on enhancing the quality of remaining life when cure is no longer available or desired. Hospice Life Care provides support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, addressing concerns, problems and emergencies. We take a holistic approach to pain and symptom management, addressing patients’ social, spiritual, and emotional needs, and always respecting their wishes.

Why Hospice?

Hospice Gives Hope

Hope for comfort when a cure is no longer feasible, hope that a patient’s final days are lived out in a secure, familiar setting in the manner in which they choose, and hope that the patient and family will be supported and nurtured.

Every day is a gift and we value quality of life for every patient, every day.

Hospice Care is provided wherever our patients call home:

Your House or Apartment

Friend's or Relative's Home

Assisted Living Facilities

Long Term Care Settings/Nursing Homes

Who Should Consider Hospice?

  • People with an estimated life expectancy of six months or less: if the disease runs its normal progression.
  • Patients and families who have chosen care that focuses on symptom management and comfort rather than curative treatment.
  • Patients and families in need of support and expert care and services to help ease them through the end-of-life journey.
  • A patient, who is aware of the prognosis and consents to the goals of Hospice care, and the patient has a primary care physician who will work with the Hospice or delegate care to the Hospice Medical Director.
