In addition to the care included in the hospice benefit, hospice care also provides additional support designed to assist with the physical, social, spiritual and emotional needs of patients and their families.

We understand that each family has unique needs and sensitivities depending on their past experiences, family structure or religious beliefs. As clinicians, we are responsible for understanding and recognizing how these factors influence a patient's behaviors and preferences and how they impact decisions regarding their care.

Our deep understanding of different cultures allows us to tailor a plan of care for every patient and family. Learn More About Culturally Sensitive Care at the End of Life.
