Agapé Mission Statement:

The Hospice Advantage
Hospice palliative care is provided to people facing the end of their life and whose care is not aimed at curing the disease but at maintaining or improving the quality of life of someone who is dying. The terminally ill may choose the nature of the care they will receive.
The process of dying is not a clinical process. Each person faces death in their own way. Having the power of choice about medical treatment, about the place where care is given, about practical, emotional, and spiritual services is essential. Our palliative care practitioners are able to help alleviate physical symptoms and psychological suffering.
