Most people think of hospice as a place for the terminally ill, fact is, Hospice is not a place, but a concept of care. More than 90% of the hospice services provided in this country are based in the home. Care provided in the home allows families to be together when they need it most sharing the final days in peace, comfort, and dignity.
