Our Services

During this period of intense emotional and physical stress, many families may feel overwhelmed and bewildered. Beacon of Hope Hospice is there to bring relief and clarity, shouldering much of the burden and responsibility of physical care and leaving the family free to focus on quality interaction with their loved one. This period is often separate in the memory of family and friends as a time of unique closeness and loving expression.

Completing life in the company of those who mean the most, surrounded by everything familiar and retaining dignity and peace is an invaluable gift. For a family to be given the ability to communicate caring in a way that is clearly understood and pleasing to your loved one brings a piece and gratification that will linger in your memory and be a source of satisfaction for years to come.
Our professional team of palliative care specialists consisting of physicians, nurses, CNA’s, chaplains, social workers, and volunteers are ready to alleviate the pain, anxiety and overwhelming array of decisions that inundate your life at this time.
