Next to picking a life partner or becoming a parent, there isn't a more personal decision than how to die for those who get the opportunity to choose.

For some, making the conscious decision to end treatment once the limits of modern medicine are exhausted is the equivalent to giving up or giving in, and they worry about disappointing the people who care about them.

Even in death, most people aren't worried about themselves.

Their number one concern is for loved ones and the worries and fears they leave behind.

This is where hospice can come in.

Through a delicate balance of leading and listening, we help people accept their own mortality, maximize comfort AND support their individual familyís journey together towards a dignified death.

Experts in pain and symptom control, we strive to give individuals and the ones they love the invaluable permission to focus together on bringing a sense of meaning, beauty and hope amid the reality of imminent death.

Itís a privilege to witness the remarkable sense of strength and support that comes together when loved ones are guided by the hospice team in understanding, preparing for and supporting each other through a final illness to make the most of lifeís final moments.
