A*Med Community Hospice is a high quality, comprehensive, palliative program dedicated to promoting comfort and quality of life for clients and families facing illness. In recognition that facing a life-limiting disease is much more than a physical experience, A*med Community Hospice utilizes an interdisciplinary team approach to provide a services for clients and families. As human beings, we experience emotional, spiritual and physical losses during the dying process. Through meeting the numerous needs of clients and families, we strive to enable clients to live life to the fullest extent possible and families to adjust to life after loss.
