Hospice & Palliative Care

Too often people think of hospice only in the last days or hours of life. The truth is that hospice care can benefit your loved one and your family for a long time. Hospice offers:

  • Specialized nurses
  • Counselors and therapists to process emotional issues for the whole family
  • Social workers to receive appropriate care and resources available to cope with problems caused by serious illness
  • Home care aides to provide personal care services
  • Volunteers to provide companionship
  • Run errands or provide general assistance
  • Chaplains to offer spiritual guidance and comfort
  • Bereavement counselors to provide comfort and support
