At National Church Residences, hospice is not a place. It is specialized care designed for someone who has a life-limiting health issue. When health challenges present themselves, important decisions and control seem to be in the hands of others. Patients and loved ones are often overwhelmed and confused regarding their options and choices.
National Church Residences Hospice Program has the simple yet profound goal of putting a person’s life back in his or her control. Our expert care staff can design an approach to care that meets the unique goals of each individual and family. We strive to honor an individual’s wishes while supporting those who love them.

Who Needs Hospice?
Hospice care is for people who have health issues including cancer, lung disease, heart disease, kidney disease, dementia, liver disease, Parkinson’s disease and many others. People with these health concerns frequently do not receive hospice care and suffer needlessly. National Church Residences Hospice Services can help.
Between 10% and 15% of all patients are discharged from hospice because their health improves. This is often because hospice care is so effective at managing a person’s care.
