Our Care

Our care is the kind that our staff would want their loved ones to have.

Patient Services

We strive to meet all physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our patients.

Our nurses are very skilled in delivering gentle, loving care to both the patients and their families. They understand medications and can determine quickly what works best. They inform and teach the patient and family in all areas as they provide the care. We hire nurses for their heart, not just for their skills.

Stories from families:

There are no words to express my gratitude to all of you for your sensitive and loving care of my husband, and your same kindness extended to our family. I shall not name you individually as you are all one team—your goal being to help our loved one and his family. You are all truly a blessing! May you all enjoy the blessings because of your support for us. You have met your “calling,” and we thank you.

I still have very strong and grateful memories of the wonderful comfort and care provided to my family and in my dad’s final days. I always take tremendous joy knowing so many others every day are recipients of your kindness, love, and caring when needed most. True angels! Thank you for your ongoing dedication and steadfast commitment to grace and dignity to those who need it most. Most of all, for providing love. Godspeed."

When he came to Little Hospice, they got his pain under control. He was lucid, comfortable, and able to talk again. He was so grateful to the nurses for the care he received. Everyone at Little Hospice is so good at what they do."

Grief Support

We provide loving care for families after the death of a loved one.

Family members can experience a significant impact after a death. We offer monthly grief support meetings where family members and friends are invited to participate. The bereavement team stays in touch with the family for up to one year after the death of their loved one by periodically mailing grief support literature to family members. Should someone require one-on-one counseling, we are able to refer them to professional help in their area.

Annual Memorial Service and Tree of Remembrance Each year, traditionally the first Sunday of December, we hold a Memorial Service and light our Tree of Remembrance. The names of patients who have died in the past year are read by our nursing staff. The tree is lit with a bulb for each person who has been cared for at Little Hospice. Cookies, coffee, and cider are served afterwards. The Tree of Remembrance is lit through the month of December.

For more information about grief support, please contact us.
