Hospice Care

What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a specialized care designed to provide support to you and your loved ones during an advanced illness. Hospice care focuses on comfort and quality of life rather than cure. The goal of hospice care is to enable you to have an alert, pain-free life, to live each day as fully as possible. Hospice care affirms life. Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life limiting illness or injury. Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, emotional, and spiritual support; expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Support is provided to the patient’s loved on as well. At the center of hospice  and palliative care is the belief that each of us has the right to pass pain-free, with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.

Hospice Mission

All Care Hospice & Palliative Care is dedicated to promoting quality life by addressing the medical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our patients and their families. We understand that each patient and family is unique. We are guided by the belief that providing the highest quality of patient care with dignity, compassion, and respect for each person is the most important activity of the organization. We feel that we should help every patient facing end of life decisions to be free of pain and in a safe, compassionate environment. These choices allow patients to spend their final days with dignity and comfort and surrounded by their loved ones.

Benefits of Hospice Care

Hospice services are a team approach integrating medical, emotional, spiritual, and social services. This team approach offers support to patients and their families when a disease or illness has resisted curative treatment. Every patient has a tailored care plan specific to their unique needs and wishes.

What can I say to you for your special care. In this difficult situation of life, it was hard on me, but your staff allowed me to be there until (the end). This was God given and you and your staff gave this to me even further. 5 years one on one is a miracle.

Dear All Care Friends,

Thank you for the loving care given to Wil during his illness. He knew you were trying to keep him as comfortable as possible and create the best quality of life under the circumstances. You kept him smiling and helped me over the rough spots.

Lovingly, Ellen Wheaton and Family

P.S. Thank you for enduring our barking dog!

The care Julie and Sara gave my mom was outstanding. If I could I would give them all a million dollars, so they wouldn’t have to work. But then no one else would receive the blessing of them like our family did. Please tell them thank you. They are hospice team. Tell Lamont he’s fabulous also!
