Valentines and Weddings
Over the years our staff has helped facilitate many weddings for our patients. These are the most joyous and beautiful memories we can offer to a family. It is our honor and privilege to provide hospice care in our community. Please help us by volunteering, donating or advocating for our services. With over 15 other hospices in this area, it is more critical than ever that healthcare consumers realize not all offer the same level of care, compassion and clinical expertise. We are proud to be the only hospice to have earned the J oint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval.

Hospice care is all about quality of life. We look forward to offering a Thursday evening happy hour to our Hospice House patients this month! (Pictured is former patient Jacob Stoltzman on the proud occasion when he was granted American citizenship).
