How Can Hospice Care Help Your Family?
Hospice care helps your loved one live their last days in comfort, at home, and with dignity. The care we provide here at Gentle Transitions Hospice is palliative care. That means we help relieve pain but do not treat the cause of the condition. As a family-operated support center, we understand the value of family. And translate this value into the care we provide for our patients.
Here at Gentle Transitions Hospice, we support those at the end of life. We provide compassionate care and symptom management. We work with an interdisciplinary team to deliver comprehensive palliative care. Our team follows medical guidelines to provide the highest level of service to the patient and support for their family.
