When someone we love is approaching the end of life, our most fervent wish is that they be allowed to die with peace and dignity. An integral part of our center's mission is the compassionate care of persons who are terminally ill.
Whiting Health Care Center provides palliative and end-of-life hospice care through local hospice providers. Our goal is to make this time as comfortable and peaceful as possible for your family. Our hospice team typically includes nurses, a social worker, home health aides, clergy, and volunteers. Spiritual and grief counseling is available, as are extended visiting hours for families.
"When my mother was in hospice care at Whiting Health Care Center, so many nurses and staff members took the time to come and just sit quietly with us, and comfort us. It meant a lot to our family."

"My father was a hero to our family and we wanted him to be able to leave his life with dignity and honor. The staff at Whiting Health Care Center always treated him with respect, and honored his wishes. They were wonderful."
