What is Hospice

Hospice care affirms the belief that it is important to make every moment of life as meaningful as possible, from the:

  • first days of a life-limiting illness to the last
  • to validate the quality rather than quantity of life
  • and to provide care to the patient and family, reflecting a living expression of love, warmth and compassion.

Compassus provides services to relieve symptoms, manage pain and give emotional and spiritual support.

Compassus provides services wherever our patients call home:

  • House or apartment
  • A friend or relative’s home
  • Assisted living facility
  • Nursing home

If medically necessary, our services are also available to hospitalized individuals.
