We know that prompt updates on your loved one’s evolving prognosis is important to you. Sometimes families are scattered all over the country and even across continents and planning to visit a terminally ill loved one is important to all concerned. Not everyone knows what to watch for to signal a gathering of the loved one’s closest family and friends. Frankly, many families are ashamed or afraid to ask.
It is important to us to know that you are comfortable in asking anything you need to know to help make critical health care decisions and to manage the affairs of your family and close circle. With us, you will not face these final weeks, days or hours alone. We know that it is a challenging transition to all involved on emotional, spiritual and physical levels which is why we grow even closer as your loved one approaches the final journey.

We are here to keep your loved one as comfortable, safe, loved and cared for as possible, allowing family and close friends to live this final chapter as most befitting to their loved one.
Tolerating pain is not a virtue at the end of life. We guide our patients and families through these final steps with absolute transparency in prognosis, with loving kindness, with an abundance of psychological and spiritual support and open hearts. So many face this final transition without medical care or emotional and spiritual support. Often, a family caregiver or team tries to cope with managing end-of-life ill-equipped to provide the best care for their loved one. Despite the best of intentions, symptoms remain untreated and pain is not sufficiently controlled.
Hospice care can play a pivotal role making the end-of-life processes easier and more meaningful to the patient and their loved ones.
