Notre Dame Hospice Care provides comfort, compassion, companionship, and support to patients nearing end of life and their families, when a treatment or cure for an underlying disease is no longer available. Services are delivered by an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals who focus on addressing physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs to improve quality of life.
At Notre Dame Hospice, we provide 24-hour, on-call availability to provide comfort and peace of mind to the patient and their family.
Plans of care are individualized to enable each patient to navigate through end of life with hope and meaning while establishing their goals of care. In line with Notre Dame Health Care’s mission of having a holistic approach to care, mind, body, and spirit are all critical aspects of each individual’s journey. We not only assess and manage all physical symptoms related to the illness and end of life, but also the emotional, spiritual, and social aspects of coping with a terminal illness. Special attention is paid to honoring the specific needs and customs of all ethnic backgrounds.
Notre Dame Hospice also participates in the We Honor Veterans program developed by The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
