What is Hospice Care?

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 the quantity of life, and to provide care to the patient and family reflecting a living expression of love, warmth, and compassion.

Comfort Plus Hospice provides services to relieve symptoms, manage pain, and give emotional and spiritual support.


What We Provide

Our Medical Director is a specially trained physician who focuses on comfort, symptom management and pain management as well as all of the medical components of the hospice program. The Medical Director partners with the patient’s attending physician as needed to provide comprehensive care.
