ProCare Hospice is a family-owned and operated hospice. We celebrate families of all kinds and we know the value of family in life and in healthcare.
What is our mission?
We are committed to improving the quality of life for those in our care. The core of the hospice care philosophy is that the care is patient and family-centered. It does not prolong life nor hasten death, but works to treat the person and their loved ones with comfort and dignity.
We know it would be almost impossible for any one person to bring together all the people and equipment that would be needed to care for someone with a terminal illness. We also know that no one will for a member of the family like another member of the family.
That makes our mission simple. We combine professional medical care with family devotion to provide a dignified and comfortable end-of-life journey for everyone.
ProCare – At the end of life, we care for your family with our family.
