About Us

Our Mission

The mission of Continuum Care Hospice is to provide comprehensive coordinated care for persons with life-limiting illnesses so they may live as fully and comfortably as possible until the end of life and offer continued support to the bereaved.

Our Vision

Continuum Care Hospice is committed to the provision of excellent care for the communities we serve. As an integral part of the healthcare system, hospice leads in the planning and provision of services at the end of life. The communities we serve are fully aware of the accessible, cost-effective, and compassionate care we provide.

Continuum Care Hospice Philosophy Statement

Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide sensitivity and support for people in each phase of terminal illness and is based on a philosophy which embraces six significant concepts:

  • Death is a natural part of life. When death is inevitable, hospice will neither seek to hasten nor to postpone it.
  • Hospice care established pain and symptom control as an appropriate clinical goal.
  • Hospice recognizes death as both a spiritual and a physical experience. Psychological and spiritual pain is as significant as physical pain and deserves the same attention.
  • Patient, their families, and loved ones are the unit of care. We have learned that to effectively care for patients, we cannot separate patients from their environment. That environment includes their homes, their families, and their friends.
  • Bereavement care is critical to supporting surviving family members and friends and starts before the death of the patient and continues for 13 months following the patient’s death.
  • Hospice care is made available by most hospices regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.
