When you or a loved one is in their last days of life, our compassionate HSHS Home Care team offers hospice care that will bring comfort, peace and dignity wherever they are. Hospice care can be provided at home, in a care facility or at a hospital.
Hospice is a comprehensive program that focuses on quality of life. We recognize dying as part of the normal process of living. We affirm life and neither hasten nor postpone death. Hospice provides support and care for individuals and their loved ones as they face the last phases of a life-limiting illness. The goal of our hospice team is to make patients physically, emotionally and spiritually comfortable so they may remain at home as long as possible with minimal disruption to normal activities.
We’ll be right by your side, because when it comes to end of life care, we know there’s comfort in the familiar.
Our hospice program is state licensed, Medicare certified and Joint Commission accredited.

Everlasting Memories offers opportunities for finding joy, lifting the spirits of those who know the end is near and providing their families with a space to share their feelings and memories to cherish once their loved one is gone.
