A part of HealthAlliance Home Health & Hospice, the hospice program enhances the quality of life for seriously ill patients. The program coordinates a team of dedicated physicians and professionals to help both patient and family in sharing the remaining days.
Emphasis is on comfort and care at home, and keeping hospitalization at a minimum.

- Pain and symptom management
- Personal care including assistance with bathing
- Counseling and bereavement support group
- Spiritual support
- Maintaining personal dignity and self determination
- Respite care and companionship
- Medications and equipment related to the terminal illness
- Communication with distant family members if desired
