The Elizabeth Hospice 2019-2020 Impact Report

our services

HospiceCare Hospice care is a specialized type of care when you and your doctor determine that future efforts to cure the illness are no longer feasible or desirable. We offer an extensive array of services for children and adults, along with comprehensive support for your loved ones. Our focus is on helping you make the most of every moment of living by ensuring you are as comfortable and as pain-free as possible.

PediatricHospice Our Pediatric Team works in concert with your child’s primary care physician and specialists to relieve symptoms and manage pain for children with a life-limiting condition. Pediatric hospice care can be provided while the child is receiving curative treatment. Grief Support Coping with the loss of someone you love is one of life’s major challenges. Our licensed counselors and trained volunteers guide people of all ages through grief and loss. We provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment for adults and children to address their feelings and learn healthy coping skills. Our services, which include individual counseling sessions and support groups, are open to everyone in the community, including those who do not have a patient affiliation with The Elizabeth Hospice.
