Hospice service continues to grow as individuals gain a better understanding of end-of-life options and the wealth of services hospice can provide to both patients and family members. While Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance companies provide some funding for hospice care, many we care for are under-insured or uninsured. As part of our mission, we provide care to anyone who is medically eligible, regardless of their ability to pay. Community support of events like this helps to make that possible.
