Services

The philosophy of Community Care Hospice is to help you live each day fully and as alert and pain-free as possible. We want you to be in charge of your Hospice care with the freedom to make informed decisions. Community Care Hospice staff recognizes and respects that your attitudes, feelings and needs are influenced by your family and that they also require special care and support.
