Our mission is simple: serve patients and their families with excellent care, generous support, and compassionate attention. We help patients live each day to the fullest. We deeply believe that one’s last days should be as meaningful as the rest– a special time that is shared with loved ones, intimate friends, and committed caregivers.
Our team of healthcare professionals are close to you every step of the way. Providing excellent patient care is more than a passion, it is our way of being. We offer supportive, holistic care that centers around individualized treatment plans. We honor the dignity of each patient and the right for them to be in control of their healthcare decisions whenever possible. We diligently manage symptoms and pain.
We are advocates for living well. All the way to the very end.

The Benefits of Hospice
Comfort Care Hospice provides advanced palliative care. Our team is fully equipped to care for terminally-ill patients along the last stages of their journey. Although, we cannot change the outcome of our patients’ conditions, we can relentlessly manage their pain and symptoms, minimizing the effects of disease and bringing relief when possible.
