Support for the whole family

Community Hospice & Palliative Care understands caring for a seriously ill loved one can be challenging. The whole family feels the effects of advanced illness. In fact, families often need as much, if not more, attention as the patient. Our care supports the whole family, with guidance to help you make the most of the time that remains. We will manage pain, help your loved one feel comfortable and help you understand what to expect.

Helping you focus on what matters most

Along with managing pain and symptoms, dispensing medications and providing personal care, we teach you how to help your loved ones when we’re not with you. We also can get your loved one out to enjoy activities, or stay with them while you take a break. We’ll also be there to help you through practical matters like insurance paperwork or finding community resources. For those hard times, we offer counseling and emotional support.

Our compassionate staff will guide you through your most challenging questions and issues. We’ve been there many times before, and we’ll be there for you, too.

After the death, we remain by your side with up to 13 months of bereavement support from our licensed counselors.
