What is Hospice?
Hospice is a special kind of healthcare designed to provide care and comfort to those living in the final stages of life, and to their families and loved ones. Our goal is to maintain the comfort and dignity of the patient by treating the physical, emotional and spiritual symptoms of the disease rather than trying to cure the disease. Hospice can be provided in your home, a nursing home facility or at our Hospice Residence.
In other words,
and enhancing the
quality of life.
Taylor Hospice utilizes a multidisciplinary team approach to meet the individual needs of each patient. Our team includes:

Provides personal care, assistance and companionship to the patient
Provides emotional support for both the patient and their family members; and coordinates access to community resources
Provides support to families and friends for a minimum of one year following the death of their loved one
Provides non-denominational spiritual support to the patient and their family members
Trained volunteers provide companionship and assistance to patients and their family members
