You are not alone.
Hospice care in Roanoke and Lynchburg in Virginia.
By definition, hospice is end-of-life care. To us, it’s far more than that. It’s living in faith, finding peace and making precious memories. Hospice is being informed, understood and respected. It’s spending what time is left on your own terms, where and how you choose — comfortable and with confidence and dignity. It’s a gentle, loving and experienced care team that joins your family for the entire journey, never more than a phone call away. And when grief and loss set in, hospice is still there to help loved ones begin the healing process.
We want to make sure you have the resouces you need during this difficult time.
We have compiled a library of information to help you care for your elderly or seriously ill loves one, better understand comfort care, make informed decisions and get the support you need as your family makes the most of every day.

- An e-library of more than 300 educational articles on medical concerns, emotional and spiritual issues and important decisions.
- Caregiving tips to help with easing fatigue, managing pain, bathing and other support that you provide.
- A monthly newsletter for family caregivers with timely tips such as tax breaks for family caregivers, protecting seniors from summer heat and coping with the holiday blues.
