Hospice Care

At Village Health Care, we honor our core principles by providing holistic end-of-life care. We offer our compassion and comfort, while preserving dignity and individuality. We understand the many, complex priorities involved in this stage of life. Our community partners with local hospice agencies to provide a comprehensive approach to end of life care.

At the center of hospice care is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families need to receive the necessary support throughout the process.

  • Assistance with bathing and personal needs from hospice aides.

  • Medications and other medical supplies needed to reduce pain and discomfort related to a terminal diagnosis.
