When medical treatments can no longer cure a disease, Steward Hospice Care, Inc. provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical care for persons in the last stages of a life-limiting illness. Our palliative care program focuses on quality of life (comfort and dignity) for terminally ill people and is centered on both the patient and their family. We provide care wherever people can benefit from hospice care – their home, in a skilled nursing facility, and assisted living / residential care facility.

We recognize that end of life is one of the most difficult events that a person and family must face. We will do everything in our power to earn your trust and we will always strive to be honest and straightforward in all matters that relate to our patients and family members. 

Our hospice care is available to patients and family – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. On-call. We have staff on standby who make visits, respond to sudden changes in condition, answer any questions, order medication, oxygen, or medical equipment, and provide emotional or spiritual support.
