Patients & Families

Your Partner When It Matters Most

Our goal is to enhance quality of life of those in our community with advanced illness, regardless of age, gender, illness, religion, or ability to pay. Our team of caregivers strives to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of every family with whom we work. We manage your pain and symptoms while providing you with the knowledge and practical support you need to make the most of your time together. As the only area hospice to win Deyta’s national Hospice Honors recognizing exceptional quality of care every year it has been offered, we are well-equipped to deliver The Best Care When It Matters Most.

Both patients and their loved ones benefit from our services, and many families tell us they wish they had contacted us sooner.

Is hospice care right for me?

Hospice care is appropriate for those with an advanced illness for whom the burdens of treatment outweigh the benefits of those treatments. Care can be provided anywhere you reside, including a private residence, nursing home, assisted living facility, or an inpatient or residential care facility, such as our Hospice House.

In most cases, the earlier you begin receiving hospice care, the better your quality of life. In fact, studies show that many patients can live longer and have better quality of life if they start hospice care earlier. Learn more about hospice care.

The Best Care Plan for YOU

We work with you and your physician to create a customized plan of care based on your individual needs, priorities and wishes. Your plan of care will incorporate:

  • You and your family's needs and goals as appropriate and in accordance with your wishes.
  • Appropriate levels of care and types of services.
  • Prescribed medications related to hospice care.
  • Medical supplies and equipment related to hospice care, including items like hospital beds, special mattresses, protable oxygen, wheelchairs, and walkers.

Care Team Members

Our dedicated team of professionals includes expert Physicians, Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants, Social Workers, Chaplains and many caring Volunteers. Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. John Shaner, is the only physician in the counties we serve who is double-board certified in both Hospice and Palliative Medicine and INternal Medicine.
