A-Vow Hospice.

Dedicated to Providing the Best Hospice Care.

What is Hospice?

Hospice care is often misunderstood. Choosing hospice does not mean you are giving up on life. Instead, it means you want to be happy and comfortable at home instead of a cure so that quality of life can be maintained for as long as possible. 

Hospice neither speeds up nor prolongs death. It provides Individualized services and a caring compassionate team so necessary preparation for death can be achieved in a way that is satisfactory for you and your loved ones. Surrounding hospice is the belief that each of us have the right to die pain free, with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary education and support to allow us to do so.

Hospice care can take place in a variety of settings, wherever your loved one calls home.

Hospice care may be the right choice for you or your loved one when living with an end-stage illness, which has a six-month life expectancy, should the disease run its normal course. There are no limits on the amount of time you can receive hospice, as long as your physician certifies that you continue to need hospice care.

Who can receive hospice care?

Hospice care is appropriate for you or your loved one if your doctor and the hospice medical director certify the disease is end-stage, with a life expectancy of six months or less if the disease runs its natural course.

Hospice care provides compassionate care, education and support for patients and families with all types of illnesses including: 

  • Cancer

  • Heart

  • lung

  • vascular

  • Renal Disease

  • ALS

  • Liver Disease

  • All types of dementia

  • Aids
