​​​​​​HOSPICE CARE


Hospice is not a place, but a philosophy of care. At its center is the belief that every person has the right to live the last phase of life free of pain and distress on his or her own terms. 


A team of specialists, dedicated to you (and your family)

The Agape hospice team is made up of physicians board certified and trained in hospice and palliative medicine, nurse practitioners, registered nurses (RNs), certified nursing assistants (CNAs), social workers, chaplains, volunteers and bereavement counselors. 


Hospice care begins with a question: "What's important to you?" 

The Agape team gathers information from the initial family / caregiver meeting and the patient's providers and creates a plan of care specific to each individual. 


Pain & Symptom Management

At Agape, our specially trained medical team takes a person’s pain and symptoms very seriously. Our physicians and nurses are expert at knowing how to address pain, discomfort and distressing conditions (such as anxiety, sleeplessness, depression, nausea, gastric distress) so patients can feel better as quickly as possible.

Emotional, Spiritual & Practical Support
People nearing the end of life often experience emotional and spiritual distress. Some find it difficult to reach out to the people in their lives. Family may feel the same, not knowing how to communicate or move forward. Agape social workers, chaplains and volunteers  may support patients and families through counseling, practical help and spiritual support.


How do I get started? 

People are often hesitant to access hospice care because it represents a shift from one approach to another: from treatment with the intent to cure to intervention focused on comfort and quality of life. Yet what we hear most from our patients and families is they wish they'd found us sooner.


Our goal is helping patients feel better so they can live better each day, and supporting family through the journey. Bereavement support is part of the hospice benefit and available to family. To learn more or access the hospice benefit, you may talk to your physician or a case manager, or call us directly. 

"My sincere thanks for the loving attention and care you gave my mother these last months of her life. I believe her quality of life improved when you began helping her on this journey. You all are an amazing group of people."
