  • Click on “News and Events” for more detailed information

And helps fund:

  • COMPASSIONATE CARE PROGRAM: for caregivers at times of critical need so patients can remain at home, supported by hospice staff.
  • COMFORT THERAPY: a program that offers additional pain and symptom management through complimentary services appropriate to each patient and family, such as massage, music therapy, acupuncture, hair and personal care requests, & therapeutic touch.

When a cure is no longer possible, Hospice provides the best in medical, nursing, emotional and spiritual care expressly tailored to the person’s needs and wishes.

 Your support helps us make all this possible.
