On behalf of our entire team, Welcome to Advantage Hospice Care

We appreciate the opportunity to help your family and loved one through this journey. During your first 5 days in hospice care, multiple disciplines from nurses to chaplain to social worker will be visiting to perform the Medicare required assessments to begin service.

Our hospice mission is to ensure your loved one is able to live with dignity and comfort as we strive to manage any pain and symptoms as part of the disease process. Our goal is to keep your loved one comfortable and you informed so you are not surprised with upcoming changes. Therefore, we have put in place several educational resources below for you. Each is a short 5–15-minute video from various sources that will guide you through signs and symptoms of end of life. The more aware you are, the better prepared you will be.
