TIME IS

Too slow for those who Wait.
Too swift for those who Fear.
Too long for those who Grieve.
Too short for those who Rejoice.

But for those who Love and Care
TIME IS ETERNITY

WHAT IS HOSPICE?

We are a team of concerned people who offer care for those with life threatening illnesses and offer support and understanding to their families.

Our team includes a physician and nurse, who have received special education, and a group of specially trained volunteers. We attempt to help in any way that is appropriate to the individual's or family's needs.

WHAT DO WE DO?

We assist with the control and relief of pain and discomforts of the illness. We coordinate home support services.
We respect the personality and individual rights of each patient and their family.

This service is free and available to all who feel they would like greater control over the choices they may wish to make about the quality of their life.

PATIENTS BILL OF RIGHTS

* maintain individuality and dignity.
* be involved in the planning and choice of care.
* know and discuss in whatever terms they wish, the extent of the disease and it's implications.
