Mission, Vision & Values
The philosophy of hospice is to improve the quality of life for patients with a life-limiting illness. Hospice is an option when patients and their physicians determine that future efforts to cure the illness are no longer feasible or desirable. The focus of treatment moves from curing to caring. Hospice care is provided by a specialized team addressing the medical, spiritual and emotional needs of the patient and, equally important, the family. The focus of hospice is to assure the patient is comfortable, allowing them to participate in special moments and enjoy the days ahead. Hospice is not designed to hasten death or “help” someone die, but rather to help patients live the remainder of their lives as fully as possible, on their own terms.
