Hospice care focuses on improving the quality of life for patients and their families faced with a life-limiting illness. The primary goals of hospice care are to provide comfort, relieve physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering, and promote the dignity of terminally ill persons. Hospice care neither prolongs nor hastens the dying process. As such, it is palliative not curative. We are here to provide you and your family with a better alternative in the face of a medical struggle. Though we don’t provide the cure, we provide comfort.
