Hospice

Our hospice care professionals offer support and resources for you and your loved ones at the time when you need them most. We are committed to providing end-of-life care in the home whenever possible to ensure the most effective comfort and symptom management.

What Is Hospice?

Hospice is a philosophy of care that provides specialized health services for people nearing the end of life. If you have a terminal illness or have decided not to pursue further aggressive care and want to focus on comfort and quality of life, hospice care may be right for you. Banner Hospice provides symptom management with a focus on dignity, as well as support services for you and your family.

Why Choose Banner for Hospice Care?

Our hospice program offers compassionate end of life care. Additionally, we offer grief and bereavement services to the family for 13-24 months after the loss of a loved one. 

We understand it is important to allow patients and their families to make their own decisions, find spiritual peace and say goodbye to loved ones.

Hospice is often helpful for patients:

  • With a life-threatening illness
  • Who no longer respond to treatment
  • Who no longer seek aggressive treatment
  • Who want palliative care at the end of life, which focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, physical stress and mental stress of a serious illness
  • Who need help with pain management related to a terminal illness
The help you need to find peace.

Get help with pain and symptom management, lean on respectful support and find peace of mind as your loved one passes on.
