About Hospice Care

Honoring Life Through Compassionate Care

 

Assisting a loved one on the path from terminal diagnosis to end-of-life is a journey for which no individual can truly be prepared. Hospice of Davidson County understands the unique challenges this transition presents and is committed to honoring the patient’s life through compassionate care that goes beyond medical assistance by providing both the patient and their family with emotional, psychological, and spiritual guidance as they navigate life’s biggest transition. For individuals facing the end of life, and for those who love them, these moments often become precious times for reflection and celebration of a life well lived.

As the focus shifts from finding a cure to providing comfort, hospice care emphasizes quality of life by managing pain and symptoms with dignity and respect to honor the patient’s goals, beliefs, and wishes for their remaining time.

Our team of medical providers and experienced staff serves patients where they are most comfortable, whether that is in the familiarity of their own home, in a nursing home or assisted living facility, or at The Henry Etta & Bruce Hinkle Hospice House, Davidson County’s only inpatient hospice unit.
