We are guided by our conviction that every person facing the end of life be treated with respect and dignity, and receive highest quality holistic hospice care that addresses the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones.
Statement of Purpose
Dame Cecily Saunders conceived hospice philosophy and services to help people die with dignity and composure, with little or no pain and whenever possible, in their own homes. We resolve to keep Dame Saunders’ vision alive, requiring a dedicated team approach to patient care and whenever possible, utilizing the talents and skills of volunteers, as hospice was conceived as an all-volunteer movement.
We are a not-for-profit service for individuals, group and communities, and emphasize providing nurturing and compassionate care as dictated solely by the needs of patients and their caregivers. In addition, we will educate patients, family members, loved ones, medical professionals and community groups as well as the community at large about hospice philosophy and services.
