At St. Catherine’s Hospice, our mission is to provide compassionate end-of-life care to those facing a life-limiting illness. Our goal is to create a space where both individuals and their family members feel safe, comfortable and cared for.
Many people do not fully understand the goal of hospice care. Some see it as giving up hope. In truth, hospice care is focused on improving the quality of life for those who have a terminal illness. One of the most common comments we hear from our patients and their families is that they wish they had chosen hospice care earlier. Studies have shown that choosing hospice earlier makes things easier on everyone affected and may actually extend the patient’s life.
Because hospice care isn’t well understood, we work diligently to educate the community, so that more people can experience the numerous benefits hospice can offer – both to a loved one and to the entire family.
Your donations help us provide quality care to patients and their families and to educate the community about hospice. Your support is greatly appreciated.
