Hospice is about living... We are here to give you comfort and help you live each day as fully as possible when you or someone you love has a life-threatening illness. Our care is based on the belief that every life has meaning and every moment of every day is a gift. As we ease pain and symptoms, and provide the emotional and spiritual comfort your family needs, you can focus more on each other and each precious day you have together.
If you’ve ever had the chance to experience hospice care, you may have seen our philosophy in action. Dr. Faustino Gonzalez, MD, FACP, FAAHPM, Vice President of Medical Affairs, says it best. "When we first meet with our patients and families, we ask them, 'What are your hopes? What would make you happy?' We are honored to hear their stories and support them every way we can. We’re here to help people live the way they want to and do the things that are important to them." In fact, it was this quote that inspired us to share a few of the meaningful stories we so often hear from the families in our care, through News to Friends.
We make sure that every person in our care feels protected and supported. We understand what families are going through and give them whatever tools and support they need to meet their goals for living.
"When a cure is no longer likely, there is so much we can do to help people feel better," explained Dr. Gonzalez in a recent interview. "We are here to meet their needs. We are here to help them live. That is exactly what hospice is all about."
