Our Family Taking Care of
Your Family

Hospice is about comfort, compassion, and support for persons and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatment. Hospice care focuses on providing comfort, relieving pain, and symptom management. Hospice also deals with the emotional, social, and spiritual impact of the illness and works to promote dignity and quality of life.

The staff of Brighton Bridge Hospice is what makes all the difference and sets us apart from any other Hospice! Our team is an integral part of the community they serve. They live, work, raise their families, and attend church alongside your families, friends, and neighbors. In addition, an early morning conference call which includes all members of our team, ensures the entire team knows of any changes or updates regarding the status of each and every patient. It also gives us an opportunity to pray for our patients, their families, and our staff.

And now these three remain: Faith, Hope, and Love. But the greatest of these is Love.
1 Corinthians 13:13

Hospice care does not have the ability to shorten or prolong life but it does give a person the power to live life as they choose. At Brighton Bridge Hospice, we believe in the concept of Hospice and are committed to assisting our patients and their families in making the end of life the best that it can be. 


Hospice is specialized care for patients with a terminal illness and an estimated life expectancy of six months or less. The goal of Hospice is comfort, compassion, and support for patients and their families when they no longer respond or want cure-oriented treatment. One key difference is that Hospice care is provided by an interdisciplinary team that is professionally trained in end-of-life care. Another difference is that Hospice pays for medical equipment, medical supplies, comfort medicines, and medicines to assist with symptom management. 

Home Health is care provided for patients who are homebound, recovering, or recuperating from surgery or require I.V. drug therapy for an infection from which they are expected to recover. Home health patients receive visits from a nurse, nurse aide, and possibly a therapist.

Who is Eligible for
Hospice Care?

Hospice is available to individuals who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and a life expectancy of six months or less, if the disease follows its normal course. This applies to most illnesses, not just cancer.

Hospice can be obtained when curative treatment is no longer effective or desired and comfort care and symptom management becomes the primary focus.

Where is Hospice care

Hospice care is a philosophy and approach rather than a place. Care may be provided in a person’s home, an assisted living facility, a long-term care nursing facility, or a hospital. It depends on the family and the personal wishes of the patient who is taking the journey.
Who can refer to

Referrals to Hospice are made by the patient, the patient’s primary care physician, an attending physician, a family member, or a nursing facility. You may contact Brighton Bridge Hospice for more information or to schedule an informational visit.
