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.

On October 1, 2015 we held the first of what will be annual discussions with our Sandra L. Bem Lecture Series on Compassionate Care and End-of-Life Issues.  Watch a video of highlights of Dr. Wood's lecture on our YouTube page.  “A Conversation with Dr. Robert Wood about Dying and the Compassionate Choices We Can Make” was presented in partnership with the Tompkins County Public Library. In a question and answer format, Nina Miller and Dr. Wood explored the distinctions between hospice care, palliative sedation, and physician-assisted suicide.
