Hospice care gives comfort and support to patients of all ages and their families when life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death. We recognize death as a natural process. Since 1997, St. Elizabeth Hospice has helped many families cope with incurable disease while helping their loved ones live with comfort and dignity.
We focus on life beyond cure.
Hospice care begins when curative treatment is no longer expected to be effective. This care neither hastens nor postpones death, but respectfully recognizes dying as a natural process.
You don’t have to be living in your own home to receive hospice care. St. Elizabeth Hospice provides care wherever you are, whether at your home, an assisted living facility, nursing home, hospital or a loved one’s home.
Our hospice team provides supportive consultation and a treatment plan that helps patients maintain their independence and quality of life for as long as possible.
