Circle of Support
At Absolute Compassion, we are committed to providing the best hospice care experience available. This commitment is evident in the personal and compassionate care that we provide to our patients everyday. In every area of hospice care, we strive to do more than what is required—and expected. The desire to do more can be seen in the passion and dedication of our staff and volunteers. It can also be measured by the services we offer, which go above and beyond what typical hospices offer.
Each one of our patients is served by an interdisciplinary team of hospice professionals, ranging from hospice physicians and Nurse Practitioners to social workers and clergy. These specialists collaborate closely with one another to meet the patient and family’s needs, from preparing for an end-of-life experience with compassion and dignity through the bereavement process. Together, these team members form a circle of support dedicated to providing the best possible care to you and your loved ones.
