Hospice

Our interdisciplinary team guides you and your family through end-of-life care with compassion and respect.

At JSSA, we know just how overwhelming it is to navigate end-of-life care. From having difficult conversations with loved ones to managing logistics while coping with grief, this time can be stressful for everyone. JSSA is here to help.

Our interdisciplinary team of registered nurses, physicians, social workers, chaplains, hospice aides, and volunteers guides you and your family through the process with compassion, collaboration, and respect. We recognize diverse cultural and racial perspectives about end-of-life, and honor and support your individual preferences.

From symptom and pain management to emotional and spiritual guidance, our hospice team works hand-in-hand with you and your loved ones. We’re with you every step of the way wherever you call home, including private homes, retirement communities, nursing homes, and assisted and independent living facilities. With JSSA hospice, your personalized team will be accessible to you 24/7.

Our Hospice team offers the following services:

  • 24/7 medical oversight

Testimonial

I'm comforted by knowing that thanks to JSSA's hospice support, the few short months we had together at the end were spent focused on living, not dying.
