We believe everyone deserves the best end-of-life care available.
Our job is to give you back your life for as much time as you have. This can be as straightforward as providing companionship and practical assistance or as complicated as controlling your pain, helping you talk to your family members, or working with you to resolve spiritual conflicts. We are here to help you find physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort. Our team of staff and volunteers can help you in your home, in an area nursing home, or in the beautiful Hospicare residence. We also provide support to those who are grieving as they face the intense and unpredictable feelings that follow the loss of a loved one.
Hospice is not a place. It is a way of caring.

Visit our Events page for a list of upcoming special events and ongoing grief support groups. Hospicare offers special and ongoing bereavement support groups to adults and children. This extra support can be especially helpful at this time of year.
Please join us Illuminations, our annual memorial event, on Thursday, June 9, 2016. Come at 7:30 p.m. to stroll through the Hospicare gardens, light a luminaria in memory or in honor of a loved one and enjoy refreshment. A special program of remembrance begins at 8:00 p.m. Attendance is free, although luminarias can be personalized for a suggested donation of $25. Donations are greatly appreciated, but not required. The event is open to the public, and all are welcome to attend. To learn more, or to purchase a luminaria, visit the Illuminations website.
The 13th Annual Women Swimmin' for Hospicare will be Saturday, August 13, 2016. Women Swimmin' is a community swim (not a race!) across Cayuga Lake. More than 300 women will swim across the lake, escorted by 170 boaters. Together they raise funds which will go directly to support our patients and their families.
Women Swimmin' Laps for Hospicare is another great opportunity for women, age 18 and older, to support Hospicare. Women Swimmin' Laps is a chance for women to be a part of the Women Swimmin' sisterhood from anywhere in the world. Swim any distance and as often as you want in any pool with a certified lifeguard.
