Choosing hospice does not mean “giving up.” It means choosing to live fully and comfortably while facing a life-limiting condition.

The hospice team at ComfortCare Hospice provides quality-of-life care to terminally ill patients and their families. Patients who are no longer seeking treatments aimed at curing their disease and have been given a prognosis of 6 months or less are eligible for hospice services. We aid the patient, family and physician in seeking comfort measures instead of aggressive, curative therapy or treatments. Our primary focus is managing pain and controlling symptoms.

We care for patients with many end-stage illnesses including:

  • Cancer
  • Heart diseases
  • Pulmonary diseases
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Liver disease
  • Renal disease
  • HIV

Our team consists of:

  • Your physician
  • Hospice medical director
  • Hospice program director
  • Nurses
  • Nurse aides
  • Pharmacists
  • Medical social workers
  • Volunteers
  • Therapists
  • Dietitian
  • Chaplains
