Our team lives locally and are deeply rooted in the community with many years of providing exceptional hospice care. Everyone member of our team has a servant’s heart drawing from personal and professional hospice experience. Our Vision is to seek to be our community’s first choice when choosing hospice care. We believe it is important to educate our community on the values of hospice at end-of-life. Legacy Hospice will be recognized as a hospice that cares immensely for the people we serve. Our hope is to empower our patients to leave a legacy that will be remembered for generations to come.
Legacy Hospice is dedicated to providing compassionate, individualized, and dignified care to those we serve. We believe that hospice should be patient-driven and family-centered as no two people are the same. A team approach to end-of-life care is pivotal to ensure patients and their loved ones have all physical, emotional, and spiritual needs met. In remembrance of our own loved ones lost along the way, our team has built a foundation of love that is reflected in our care for others. We will walk with our patients on their end-of-life journey, guiding and supporting them each step of the way. We are honored to be a part of their legacy.
