Hospice care is not a 9 to 5 job: Staff are available 24/7 for consultation as issues and emergencies arise. We are there to walk together with you and your family as you navigate the difficult road ahead. To best assure that we are there when you need us, we have two clinical offices to serve you.

Triage Team:

The Triage team is available after regular hours and on weekends to work with families and patients should any emergencies or concerns arise. A phone call to any of our toll-free numbers will get to our answering service which will contact a triage nurse immediately. A triage nurse will then contact and work with the family to determine the best course of action whether it be offering advice over the phone or making a face to face visit to the home.
