We believe that hospice is not a place but a philosophy of care focused on comfort. Hospice is the most appropriate care option when an individual has decided to discontinue medical treatment to focus on comfort and quality of life. Hospice encompasses the needs of the individual's family and caregivers as well. Our goal is that as a team, the individual, family, and caregivers are able to fully enjoy meaningful time together. Providing care at the place the individual calls home is the basic philosophy of hospice. We strive to meet our patients where they are, whether that is at home, in a family home, in a nursing home, in an assisted living, or in a residential care facility.
Our hospice team has years of combined experience in hospice and palliative care. Additionally, we support, guide, and educate individuals, family, and friends during this time of transition. Questions are a welcome part of what we do! We strive to make sure our patients and their families feel comfortable about the exceptional care we provide.
We are rooted in our faith. Each interaction with our patients is guided by our relationship with the Lord. At Live Well Hospice, our families can rest easy knowing that their loved one is being cared for with the respect, consideration, and kindness they deserve.
At Live Well Hospice, we believe the last thing families should worry about during this time of transition is cost. We work with insurance providers and accept donations to ensure that individuals receive the absolute best care and support they deserve, free of charge.
Live Well Hospice offers respite care services to help caregivers take a moment for themselves. We proudly offer free grief counseling and bereavement services to caretakers, loved ones, and community members. We also organize hospice support groups that are open to our community. At Live Well Hospice, we believe in caring for the whole family!
Hospice began in the United States in 1963. First offered by volunteers and teams of nurses, hospice is now considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for those facing a serious or life-limiting illness or injury. At the center of hospice and palliative care is the belief that each of us has the right to live well in this time of transition, pain-free and with dignity. Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, emotional, and spiritual support expressly tailored to the individual and families’ needs and wishes.
