Care focused on comfort
Hospice services in Roanoke, VA and Lynchburg, VA.
During this challenging time, our focus is entirely on your comfort, end-of-life wishes and the well-being of your loved ones. When you decide to engage hospice services, you can regain control of your life by setting the course for how you want to approach your new reality. We join you on this journey as experienced guides, helping you re-define hope, achieve your goals and remain as comfortable as possible for as long as possible.

At Gentle Shepherd, our work is our calling, which stems from deeply held values of faith, hope and love. You will be cared for in a manner that exemplifies the ministry of Christ. You will be greeted with smiles and a servant’s heart, cared for with gentle hands and treated with kindness, wisdom and respect.
Caregivers and close family members also find reassurance, relief and peace of mind. We often hear from families that they wish they had called hospice sooner. Many are surprised by the breadth of services they qualify for and feel blessed by the impact our care team has on the entire family during this difficult time.
