The doctor said there’s no cure. So what now?
You are not alone. We’ve walked with families through caring for their loved ones for over 20 years. We’re here for you. Right now you probably feel exhausted, overwhelmed, confused and emotionally broken. That’s okay, and we understand. Together we can work through all of the necessary decisions and whatever may come. In the meantime, keep praying for a miracle. And we’ll help you turn this troubling time into treasured memories.
Our mission and purpose is to provide our patients with the best hospice care available in a manner that exemplifies Christ’s ministry while he was on earth. This has always been our philosophy and practice, and it is our continued commitment and promise to you.
So, take a deep breath, pick up the phone, and give us a call. We’ll talk through the many options available to you. Then if you want, we can take it from there.
