St. Martin's Home Hospice
What is a Hospice?
A hospice is a facility where palliative care is given to residents in their last stage of life. We aim to reduce stress and anxiety in a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. We provide personalized care, loving guidance, safety, and tranquility to reach a comfortable state, physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. Together, we can work to fulfill your life's journey in a meaningful way.
We work together with other professionals such as; physical therapists, a dietician, and social workers to reach the state in which you feel comfortable. We are in close contact with the doctors and therefore can consult them any day or night.
Once you are admitted to the hospice and are fit enough to go out for a few hours, you are more than free to do so. Loved ones and church members can be involved in your care and visit anytime, at your desire.

Once admitted, the family or a loved one can visit 24/7 and may also spend the night if desired.
