We focus on comfort and relief of symptoms, emphasizing the quality rather than the duration of life. We treat the person, not the disease, making the best of each unique person’s remaining time.

Lovejoy Hospice is a non-profit organization that serves patients through a combination of professional and volunteer caregivers. No one is refused service because of lack of financial resources. Donations of time and money help us to ensure that everyone faced with a life-limiting condition can receive our support services. Ask us how you can help.
