When the challenges of chronic or serious illness confront you or someone you love, we want you to know there is help. We understand this can be an overwhelming time and you deserve compassionate care every step of the way.

Since 1979, Hospice & Palliative CareCenter has given countless patients and families help, hope, and support. Today, our passion remains the same and we are glad that you are visiting our web site to learn more. Please don’t hesitate to call us and begin getting the support you need — today. You’ll be in good hands.

When serious illness reaches the point beyond medical cure, a person’s life is not suddenly beyond hope. Patients no longer seeking curative medical treatment often choose to embrace this difficult time with a new understanding of hope — hope for comfort, hope for dignity, hope for peace, hope for compassionate care at home. This is the guiding philosophy of hospice care. At Hospice & Palliative CareCenter, we believe that however long a person has to live, every moment should be cherished. That’s why we promise patients and families emotional and physical care and support every step of the way.

If you or someone you love receives a diagnosis of serious or chronic illness, ask for a Supportive Care Partner and benefit immediately from the highest level of guidance, medical assistance, and emotional support.

Grief Counseling

Mourning the death of someone you love takes time. Your heart and mind need to find their way — in their own time. Grieving is a deeply personal and a gradual experience. The counseling we offer is about recognizing where people are in this process, helping them identify their strengths, and assisting them in developing ways to cope.

When a loved one dies, mourning is an essential step in the healing process. Counselors work with clients to validate the experience of grief, find strength and coping skills.

Complementary Therapies

Complementary therapies add an extra dimension of care to Hospice’s commitment to nurturing the body, mind, and spirit. These non-invasive, holistic practices do not replace the medical, social, or spiritual care of the hospice team. Rather, they work with the total care of the interdisciplinary team to promote comfort and wholeness for both patients and their families.

Pediatric Palliative Care

Hospice & Palliative CareCenter provides expert care to people of all ages, including infants and children. Our Pediatric Palliative Care program is specifically designed to meet the needs of infants and children living with a serious illness and their families.
