Our Definition of Hospice Care
“7 out of 10 Americans said they would prefer to die at home.”

Hospice Myth: Hospice is a place to go to die.
Our Hospice Definition: Hospice is a concept of care, not a specific place to die. Hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. Hospice neither hastens nor prolongs death. Hospice provides personalized services and a caring community so that patients and families can attain the necessary preparation for a death that is satisfactory to them.
Patients can remain in their own homes. Hospice care is provided wherever the patient lives, whether its in their own private residence, nursing home or assisted living facility.
