WHY HOSPICE CARE?
According to a 2010 study in the New England Journal of Medicine, patients receiving early hospice care experienced less depression, had better quality of life, and survived 2.7 months longer. Catholic Community Hospice can play a key role in managing physical symptoms of a disease and supporting patients and families emotionally and spiritually.
WHY CATHOLIC COMMUNITY HOSPICE?
Our passion for hospice ministry is fueled by the desire to see patients met with a tangible expression of love, hope and compassion during one of life’s most vulnerable stages. Guided by the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Providers, we serve people of all faiths as they navigate the joys and sorrows experienced at end of life.
Care as individual as you are!
