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.

Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in our 13th Annual Women Swimmin' for Hospicare! On August 13, 2016, 320 women swam across Cayuga Lake to support hospice services in our community. The women were escorted by 170 boaters and met on shore by hundreds of well-wishers. Also supporting the swimmers were 140 volunteers who helped out on shore and in the days leading up to the event.
