Delaware Hospice was founded in 1982 by a grassroots committee who wanted to provide better end-of-life care. Since that time, it has remained the only not-for-profit hospice in the state, committed to its mission of providing the highest quality of hospice care to the communities it serves.
At the heart of hospice care is a passionate concern for individuals and their families coping with the most critical time of their lives. Delaware Hospice empowers individuals and their caregivers with education to provide comfort and personal care. Together, we will develop a care plan that includes everything from symptom management, which ensures patient’s comfort, to emotional and spiritual support. Our goal is to provide a holistic approach that considers the combined medical, personal, emotional and spiritual needs of the individual, who, along with loved ones, are living with a life-limiting illness.
Contributions from individuals, businesses and the community have allowed Delaware Hospice to serve anyone within our service area, regardless of their ability to pay, while maintaining a level of quality care which meets the rigorous standards of Joint Commission accreditation.
