Care with Shepherd’s Cove Hospice is not about death but rather about providing every person peace and comfort as they near the end-of-life journey. Our team is here to support each person to live each day fully, and enjoy precious moments with loved ones. This support extends to family members as Shepherd’s Cove Hospice helps them cope with their own unique emotional and spiritual concerns. Care is provided in the patient’s home, whether that home is a long-term care facility, assisted living facility or private residence.
