Hospice is Not a Place

It’s a special kind of care that gives you the power to live your life as you choose. To be at home.

To be with loved ones. To be pain-free. To be comforted and cared for when you can no longer be cured. It’s about how you live.

Having a serious illness may not be your choice... How you live is.

It’s about living life to its fullest. It’s about receiving comfort and care, even when a cure is no longer possible. It’s about surrounding yourself and your loved ones with medical, emotional and spiritual support. Learn about palliative care and hospice. It’s about how you live.
