Hospice Care

We enter this world surrounded by love and comfort – and we deserve the same when we leave. Caring for a dying loved one at home can be enriching and rewarding, but it’s never easy. That’s why St. Luke’s Hospice offers a team of highly specialized professionals and volunteers trained to provide the care and support to help patients die peacefully, and live as fully as possible until the moment of death.

The care provided by St. Luke’s Hospice allows people to die with dignity in their own homes, in familiar surroundings, with those they love by their side. We provide expert medical care, pain and symptom management, and emotional and spiritual support – offering stability and comfort when and where it’s needed most.

Highlights & Resources

    Hospice Care Plan

    People with life-limiting illnesses or conditions have unique needs, and so do their family members. In partnership with the patient, family, and physician, our skilled team of health care providers creates a plan of care tailored to meet the wishes and needs of each patient.

    About St. Luke’s Hospice

    St. Luke's Hospice is a Medicare-certified program. It’s designed to bring comfort and enhance quality of life without aggressive efforts to cure or offer life-support.
    Our services are available to anyone in the later stages of a terminal illness who:

    • Seeks comfort and symptom control
    • Has a physician certify that hospice care is appropriate 
    • Has a 24-hour primary caregiver or contact person

    Doctors, hospitals, nurses, social workers, family, clergy, and friends may refer someone to our hospice care. Care is provided without regard to diagnosis, age, race, religion, sexual orientation, physical disability, or ability to pay.

    Services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private health insurance companies. Assistance is available to help find other options for those without health insurance coverage.
