Hospice

Our Topeka Hospice Care Program focuses on providing compassionate, quality care to those individuals with a life limiting illness.

 
Our ultimate goal is to help each individual live a high quality of life through dedicated efforts to ensure the highest levels of care and compassion.
 
Hospice focuses on palliative care and comfort care in the final stages of life. It is important to note that hospice does not hasten death, but instead helps the individual live fully and comfortably, affirming their uniqueness and providing support to their loved ones.
 

We believe that every life matters until the very last moment.

 

Our team has decades of combined experience in providing hospice care and feels that this experience resonates in the care we provide to you and your family.

Bereavement Services

In times like these, we need one another. We need the help of those who will listen and be present with us. We often need the help of those who have been where we are – and even sometimes the help of those who have been trained to help us when we are mourning.
