We take a team approach to hospice care.
Hospice Care Team
During your first visit with a nurse, you can discuss what services you need and the frequency of visits. If you also need home care or other personal services, our social worker can connect you with community resources — including our dedicated hospice volunteers.
In addition to scheduled visits each week, a nurse is always on-call 24/7 to answer questions or make an emergency visit if necessary. Consider us your 911, day or night.
Meet the Gentle Shepherd Hospice team.
We're Here to Help
