"When reflecting on what hospice means to us as community members, it allows an individual to benefit from supportive services in a manner that is both empathetic and sensitive. Hospice follows a path of person-centered care within any environment for the client.

This allows each client to find comfort in their chosen environment whether that may mean their own home or even an assisted living community. Along with supporting the client, hospice guides families through this emotional journey.

They bring both connectedness and compassion to this process. For clients and family members, this is often uncharted territory and may leave some people feeling helpless and in a place of fear. The guidance provided by hospice takes away the fear component and replaces it with a sense of security and purpose to embrace each moment."
