Hospice Care:  Our care team works hand-in-hand with patients and families to provide a variety of support services when you need them most.  Hospice patients often experience a great deal of physical discomfort as well as emotional turmoil. At the same time, their illness can be overwhelming for the individuals who care for them. That is why Crossings Hospice offers an intergrated hospice program, which provides medical, social, emotional and spiritual support for our patients and their families.
