When an individual is welcomed into the loving arms of Hospice Care, his or her physical, spiritual and emotional needs become the focus of the professionals who will provide care. An individual care plan is created based on those needs.
The patient’s comfort level is foremost, and we will do everything we can to alleviate pain and discomfort. At the same time, we offer our support and care to the family who will journey with this person through this very special time.
Patients and families are given the remarkable opportunity to spend quality time together, to reconfirm or repair relationships, to create new memories. The end of life can be a very sweet, enlightening and joyful time.
Cost of service is never an issue. Medicare, Medicaid and most commercial insurances will pay hospice benefits for care, medication related to the diagnosis, and durable medical equipment as prescribed by a doctor.
But even if a person is not covered by any insurance plan, we never send a bill for services. We are guided by our mission to care for anyone in need, regardless of ability to pay.

- Nurse / nursing assistant visits
- 24 hours, 7 days a week on-call service
- Any medications related to hospice diagnosis
- Durable medical equipment and supplies
