Assistive Equipment & Medication

Counseling for Patients & Caregivers
Living with a serious medical condition is challenging not just because of the physical harm it can do but because of the mental and emotional toll, as well. That’s just as true for friends, family members, and caregivers as it is for the patients themselves. Fortunately, our hospice care is limited solely to treating physical maladies and the body parts they afflict. We also care just as much about our patients as we do about their loved ones.
