What is Hospice

Hospice care is a commitment to quality of life for people who are experiencing an advanced, life-limiting illness. At Ascent, we care for a person who is expected to live about 6 months or less—where we treat the person and symptoms of the illness, rather than the illness itself. A team of expert professionals work together to ease symptoms, so a person’s last days may be spent with dignity and choice while surrounded by their loved ones.

Compassionate Care

Compassionate care is crucial for patients and families during the end-of-life journey. Through an interdisciplinary approach to care planning and proper training and education, our staff provide care with compassion and empathy. We believe every patient and family are an extension of our Ascent Hospice family. Attentive care is provided to every patient and family to ensure a mutual appreciation and genuine concern for the needs of the patient at the end of life.

We foster an environment where our care team feels empowered to serve our patients putting their needs at the highest priority. Our exceptional care team promotes our mission daily in their dedication to every patient and family. We celebrate their contributions to our patients, families, and our mission. We are dedicated to the exceptional care provided to every patient and further extend our commitment to the support of our Care Team members who respond daily to the “Call to Serve”.
