Hospice Care

Hospice care is not a place, but rather a philosophy to provide comfort care to patients including medical, emotional and spiritual care focused on quality of life. Hospice provides experienced, compassionate care to patients and their families when faced with a serious, life-limiting illness. Hospice is high-quality medical care given when the focus shifts from curing the illness to providing comfort or when patients choose to not seek aggressive medical care at end of life...

Palliative Care

Palliative care is specialized medical care that improves quality of life for patients with a chronic or advanced illness. Palliative medicine provides comfort and improves quality of life with a focus on relieving pain, suffering, stress and symptoms of living with a serious illness. Unlike hospice care, palliative therapy is not time-limited and does not require the patient to have a prognosis of six months or less to live.

What the Families of our Patients are Saying…

We can’t thank you enough for assistance for our mom.

We can’t thank you enough for assistance for our mom. Ronda was her ongoing hospice nurse and we felts so lucky to have her.  She was the perfect fit because they were both just wonderfully nice people, soft-spoken and gentle souls.  Ronda always spoke so kindly and gently to her that fit her personality to a “t”.  Ronda is an amazing nurse and person.  She called every week, with a report which was always wonderful to receive because it gave us the professional opinion of Anna’s condition that we were so glad to know.  Ronda was always so prompt in responding to our needs and questions, and returned by call almost before I could put my phone down!  Staff members also spoke so highly of her.  There were other nurses or CNAs along the way, but I am sorry, I am not sure of all their names, all very nice.  Also, Kaylee was her CNA and also very pleasant.

We have deep gratitude for all the special care and services.

To the caring team at Angels Grace, we have deep gratitude for all the special care and services you provided to our dear mother during her time on hospice, up until the end of her earthly journey.  Liz and the angels that worked with her were very kind, not only to my mom, but to our entire family as well.  May God bless you all abundantly for the work that you do.  Wishing you peace, love, and joy at the holidays and always.

We will be forever thankful to Angels Grace.

When you came into mom’s life four months ago, we didn’t envision the magnitude of the care you would provide and what it would mean for her. A “thank you” doesn’t seem enough but were are so very appreciative, especially for Lisabeth and her extraordinary ability to provide compassionate and highly skilled care for mom as well as being a good listener in my times of need.  We also appreciate the spiritual guidance Kathy provided for mom and dad and reassurance for us all.  All the staff at Angels Grace was great, and the care you provided certainly took away some of our burden and let us focus on mom.  We will be forever thankful to Angels Grace.
