Where Quality & Compassion Meet
Pathways Healthcare was founded on the belief that patients heal best within the comfort of their own homes. Likewise, Pathways Hospice offers patients facing advanced illnesses the freedom to live each day to its fullest, surrounded by family and loved ones. Our goal is to provide our patients with comfort, dignity, quality of life and, above all else, time.
The Pathways Team works with you, your family, and your medical Providers to deliver high-quality hospice care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our board-certified hospice clinicians provide the highest quality of care with compassion and commitment to our patients and families. Our Team is honored to be a part of your journey.
At Pathways Hospice, we recognize that each patient has a unique set of needs. We understand that patients and families need a combination of physical, emotional and spiritual support.
Some of the services we provide include:

Here is what you can expect in the first few days:
Lengths of stay in hospice vary. Neither you nor we know how long you may be a patient with us. We do know, however, that many studies have shown that patients who receive hospice care earlier in their disease process are more likely to have a longer, more fulﬁlling life than those who opt out of hospice care.
Depending on the progression of your condition and the time of referral, the length of stay in hospice care can vary. Some people believe that a person only qualiﬁes for hospice if they are bedridden, unable to care for themselves, or acutely dying. This is simply untrue. Many of our patients are still mobile, able to care for themselves and can participate actively in daily tasks. We have seen patients live for years on hospice care, while continuing to meet hospice guidelines. Early referral to Hospice can help ensure that
a patient receives the maximum beneﬁts available.
Sadly, many patients begin hospice care just days or hours before death. When someone is referred to hospice care very late, the patient and family’s priority may be focused on managing pain and acute symptoms, and there is less time to develop a plan of care that incorporates the patient and family’s emotional, spiritual, and social well-being. While we believe that a patient can beneﬁt from even one day of hospice care, we know that optimal holistic care is best achieved when a referral is made early.
