Hospice is a special way of caring for people who are living with a life-limiting illness as well as their families and caregivers. At Hospice of Cabarrus County, our goal is to help people live their last days as comfortably as possible, surrounded by family and friends.
First and foremost, we care for our patients and their families. The unmet needs of those who are dying, and those who care and grieve for them, motivates our work.
Our experienced team provides exceptional care with compassion.
