What Does Hospice Care Involve?
An individualized plan of care tailored to the full spectrum of needs for our patients and their families is the foundation of our hospice service.
Each patient we serve is faced with unique circumstances associated with end-of-life care. Islands Hospice strives to meet those challenges and ease those burdens. Our interdisciplinary team works together with the patient and family to provide the highest quality medical care, as well as social and spiritual support. Our mission is to walk alongside those we serve to provide end-of-life care with respect and dignity.
