Hospice is a program to provide comfort-centered care for people who have a limited life expectancy. Hospice is comprised of dedicated, compassionate doctors, nurses, social workers and chaplains. But, as a government-funded program, it has its limitations.
While HopeBridge is not a hospice agency, we have a passion for working with hospice clients and frequently partner with local hospice agencies to help fill in the spaces that family is expected to fill. We are here to bridge the gaps in care.
