Holding Hands

What is Hospice?

Hospice is more than healthcare.

Hospice is care for the whole patient- addressing the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of patients and their families as patients near the end of life.

It is a philosophy of care that focuses on improving quality of life through support, comfort and symptom management.

At Enchanted Sky Hospice, we believe beautiful moments can be created even during life's most challenging times. 

Our goal is to improve and transform the end-of-life process in a positive and meaningful way by helping our patients celebrate the lives they've led and live their remaining life to the fullest.

If you feel that you or your loved one may be in the final 6 months to year of life, hospice services may be a good option to help provide the increased care and support you need. Consultations are always free, and our phones are always answered by a real person.

Coordination
of Care

When you decide to elect hospice care, our team will work with your current healthcare providers to coordinate the transfer of your care onto hospice services. Once on hospice, each patient is assigned a hospice team, which includes a doctor, nurse practitioner, nurse case manager, chaplain, social worker and health aide. Your core team members will work with you to develop and tailor your plan of care to your individual needs and preferences. Your case manager will coordinate your care across all disciplines. Our team members are able to collaborate with many outside services at your request.
