When you are seriously ill, it's important to be in a place where you feel secure, comforted and cared for-relieved of pain and distress. You want to be surrounded by dedicated, capable, compassionate professionals.
When being at home is not the best option, it's good to be where it's pleasant and home-like, in a community that offers space for quiet reflection, and welcomes your family and friends. Arbor Hospice
has been providing quality service and compassionate care to the terminally ill and their families throughout the region since 1984. We are committed to providing help to families and enabling individuals to complete their lives with dignity, in comfort and at peace. At home or in The Residence of Arbor Hospice, patients and their families are educated, prepared and supported every step of the way. Through our adult and children's bereavement programs, Arbor Hospice offers a comprehensive range of counseling and support services to anyone who has suffered a loss.
