Hospicare is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Our mission is to bring medical expertise and compassionate, respectful care to people and their loved ones at any stage of a life-threatening illness, and to provide information and education about advanced illness, dying, and bereavement to the entire community.
Palliative care specializes in relieving the symptoms and stress of serious illness. Symptoms may be physical, emotional, or spiritual. The goal is to improve quality of life for you and your family. Palliative care can be provided at the same time as treatment that is meant to cure you.
Our interdisciplinary team provides support and comfort in the last six months of life by taking into consideration medical, emotional and spiritual needs so you can more fully enjoy time with loved ones.
Support groups, workshops, community memorials, and private counseling sessions are available to anyone in our service area who is grieving the death of a loved one, whether or not they died on hospice.
