Lakeside Hospice is a faith-based, community-supported program committed to caring for the terminally ill regardless of their ability to pay.
The goal of Lakeside Hospice is threefold: (1) to provide medical care to enable the patient to remain alert, comfortable and capable of participating in life as fully as possible for as long as possible, (2) to provide the patient and family as much psychological, emotional, social and spiritual support as they may desire or need, and (3) to maintain community involvement and awareness. It is also the goal of Lakeside Hospice to maintain the highest quality of care to all patients.
Hospice affirms life and focuses on the quality of life. Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of incurable disease so that they might live as fully and comfortable as possible. Hospice recognizes dying as a normal process whether or not resulting from a disease. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care and the support of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and families may be free to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.
