Hospice Care

Hospice care is a special approach to caring for people with an incurable illness.  Our goal is to foster the optimum quality of life through physical, spiritual, and emotional support.  Hospice care is available in the home, independent/assisted living community, a nursing facility or in our 14-bed Hospice Home.

Palliative Care

Palliative care is designed for home-bound patients with a serious illness who may be seeking curative treatment.  Our team provides support and assistance to manage health care needs in the home, area nursing facilities or by appointment at Lutheran Hospital.  We help patients and their families and/or caregivers learn about symptom control and pain management.

Our Continuum of Care

Continuum of Care is provided by our interdisciplinary team of professionals, including the hospice & palliative care physicians, the patient’s physician(s), nurses, social workers, non-denominational chaplains, home health aides, therapists and volunteers.
