About Hospice of Davidson County

Compassionate Hospice Care Since 1985

Established in 1985, Hospice of Davidson County is an accredited end-of-life healthcare provider offering 24/7 medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support to relieve suffering and improve the quality and dignity of life following a terminal diagnosis from illness or injury.

Our team of experts is committed to helping families navigate their hospice care journey with compassion and empathy through comfort-oriented advocacy and medical assistance. We serve residents with hospice care in the greater Davidson County community, from Lexington, Thomasville, Welcome, Midway, Arcadia, and other surrounding counties, including Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph, and Rowan.

We respect your right to decide where your loved one will feel most at peace, whether it’s at our Hinkle Hospice House inpatient unit, an assisted living community, or the comfort of their own home. Hospice team members are available at all hours to provide care, comfort, and guidance to your family. The frequency and type of visits provided are individualized and based on the patient and family’s needs.
