“From the very beginning Hospice of Leesville was great. They were caring, respectful, understanding, compassionate, informative, always available, and so much more. As primary caregiver I could not have survived without the AWESOME STAFF! Thanks for everything!”

What do your patients want?

  • A Gallup poll reveals that close to nine in ten adults (88%) would prefer to die in their homes, free of pain, surrounded by family and loved ones: Hospice works to make this happen.
  • National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization research shows that 94% of families who had a loved one cared for by hospice rated the care as very good to excellent.
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has indicated that expanding the reach of hospice care holds enormous potential benefits for those nearing the end of life, whether they are in nursing homes, their own homes, assisted living facilities or in hospitals.
  • National Hospice Foundation research shows that the top four services Americans feel are most important for a loved one who has less than six months to live are:
    1. Someone to be sure that the patient’s wishes are honored;
    2. Choice among the types of services the patient can receive;
    3. Pain control tailored to the patient’s wishes; and
    4. Emotional support for the patient and family.

    Hospice works to honor the wishes of those individuals with terminal illness who prefer to die in their own homes and on their own terms.
