Hospice is not a place but a philosophy of care for people with an incurable or life-limiting disease. When a patient enters into hospice care, Good Samaritan Hospice comes to them to provide compassionate and comprehensive services, whether their residence is a home, a nursing facility, or a hospital. Hospice care is provided most often in a patient’s home – the place where someone is most comfortable surrounded by friends, family, and familiar objects.  

While the goal of most medical care is to cure, the goal of hospice is to provide palliative (comfort-related) care that enables a patient to live his or her final days as fully as possible surrounded by care, compassion, and dignity. The hospice philosophy sees dying as a natural part of life, yet we do not hasten nor postpone this natural process. The last stage of life can be a time for growing, sharing, cherishing and letting go.



Good Samaritan Hospice’s team is comprised of physicians, nursing staff, social work staff, chaplains, hospice aids, and volunteers who work together to care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of both the patient and their family and loved ones.
