St. John's Hospice Care

Comfort Care's hospice philosophy emphasizes quality of life and controlling pain and symptoms. Advance directives, such as living wills and health care proxy forms are encouraged. Nursing, medical, social work, and pastoral care staff work with elders and families to meet emotional as well as physical comfort needs. Our specially trained staff provides counseling and locates resources to meet the social, personal, financial, and emotional needs of families and residents.

In Comfort Care, our approach is "high touch" rather than hi-tech. Services may qualify for Medicaid, Medicare and other insurance coverage.
