About Hospice of Union County

The Hospice Mission

The mission of Hospice of Union County, Inc. is to provide compassionate, quality care to those suffering life-limiting illnesses, regardless of ability to pay, and to serve as a clinical, ethical and spiritual resource for family members as well as others in our community affected by death and dying.

The Hospice Concept

Hospice is a concept of care that involves health professionals and volunteers who provide medical, psychological, and spiritual support to terminally ill patients and their loved ones. Hospice stresses quality of life - peace, comfort, and dignity. A principle aim of hospice is to control pain and other symptoms so the patient can remain as alert and comfortable as possible. Hospice services are available to persons who can no longer benefit from curative treatment; the typical hospice patient has a life expectancy of six months or less. Hospice programs provide services in various settings: the home, hospice centers, hospitals, or skilled nursing facilities. Patients' families are also an important focus of hospice care, and services are designed to provide them with the assistance and support they need.
