Minnesota Hospice understands the choice to begin hospice services defines how you live your life. Our priority is to support you, your family, and caregivers. You decide how this precious time is spent to achieve the highest quality of life while receiving the gold standard in healthcare by an experienced and compassionate team of experts.

What is Hospice?

Hospice is a concept of care sought by a person seeking comfort care rather than curative treatment for a life-limiting illness. We provide a holistic approach that encompasses pain and symptom management for the patient, as well as emotional and spiritual support tailored to meet the needs of each unique individual and their caregivers.

All people deserve love, compassion, and dignity at end-of-life. At Minnesota Hospice, we strive to empower people to live life as fully as possible on their terms. Our team is dedicated to walking with you during this part of life’s sacred journey. Hospice is about finding meaning, purpose, love, and beauty in living and to departing life peacefully.

Hospice appropriate individuals may show some or all the following symptoms. If 3 or more symptoms are present, it may be time to seek hospice services.

What are Common Life-Limiting Illnesses?
