“Hospice isn’t to help you die, it’s to help you finish living” Danny K, 2011
The Hospice Philosophy
Hospice care is designed to provide support for people with a terminal illness. Hospice care enables patients to carry on an alert, pain-free life and to manage other symptoms so that their last days may be spent with dignity and quality at home or in a homelike setting.

How Hospice Works
Hospice services are available to persons who can no longer benefit from curative treatment, or choose to end curative treatment. The typical hospice patient has a life expectancy of six months or less. Most receive care at home, but we do provide care in assisted living facilities, nursing homes and hospitals. Services are provided by a team of trained professionals – physicians, nurses, counselors, therapists, social workers, aides and volunteers – who provide care and support services not only to the patient, but to the patient’s family and loved ones. The patient can be referred to hospice by their doctor, family members, friends, clergy, or other healthcare professionals.
