    About Us

    Hospice provides quality of life and comfort care for hospice eligible patients. Comfort is defined by the patient and family, not the hospice agency. Goals of care are determined by the patient and family and Patient/family goals are our goals.
    We believe that all hospice-eligible patient and those who love them deserve the best care at the end of life. An eligible patient does NOT have to:
    “Be ready to die”
    Sign a DNR (“Do Not Resuscitate”) form
    Give up comforting treatment
    Have made all of decisions about care goals prior to electing hospice
    Give up hope for a cure
    Have a caregiver who accepts the patient’s diagnosis
    Have a caregiver at the time of admission
    Give up the attending physician
