Hospice is a philosophy of care, not a place. Unlike curative plans of treatment, hospice care provides effective symptom management and pain control along with emotional and spiritual support for the patient, the family, and other loved ones. Hospice care is designed for people who have a life expenctancy of months instead of years and have chosen to focus on palliative care, comfort, and relief from pain and symptoms.
No one is denied services because of age, race, color, creed, gender, nationl origin, sexual orientation or religion. Icon Hospice makes you and your loved ones the object of uncritical devotion. Icon Hospice has made it a priority to educate its team members on cultural competency, sexual orientation sensitivity and the importance of acknowledging and accepting all religious practices and upbringings.
Our services are coordinated with the patient's physician and provided during regularly scheduled visits by hospice team members to manage the patient's care. If a crisis should arise, Icon Hospice is able to respond 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
