Hospice is a special way of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for people coping with a terminal illness. The hospice philosophy accepts death as the final stage of life; it affirms life but does not try to hasten or postpone death, nor cure an underlying disease. The focus of hospice is to support the highest quality of life for whatever time remains at a patient’s “home,” whether it is a private residence, skilled nursing facility, or assisted living facility.

At Jansen Hospice, our goal is to provide you with support medically, emotionally, and spiritually.
