Mission Statement


We will focus our resources to serve the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of our associates, patients and families with a sense of compassion, urgency and customer service. We will preserve the dignity of death for our patients and families so that no one has to die in pain or alone. We will serve, educate and support our local communities and and referral sources as to the benefits, dignity and nobility of end of life care.

Description


Hospice is a program of palliative and supportive services that provide physical, psychosocial and/or spiritual care for terminally ill persons and their families. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death, but rather affirms life, emphasizes dignity and enhances the quality of the remainder of a person's life. Hospice care is a comprehensive, medically directed, team-oriented program that accentuates pain and symptom management - rather than curative treatment - for patients who no linger respond to routine medical care. Hospice is about living. It treats the person, not the disease...focuses on the entire family, not just eh individual...adds life to days at a time when days can no longer be added to life.
