Quality & Compassionate Hospice Care

Halifax Health provides expert and compassionate care to patients and families.

Why Choose Halifax Health - Hospice?

  • We provide expert and compassionate care to patients and families. Our care teams work closely with the patient’s physician and/or Halifax Health – Hospice physician to develop a personalized plan of care to manage pain, control symptoms and ensure physical comfort.

  • At Halifax Health – Hospice patients and family make choices about their care and our care team honors their wishes. Goals of care are met and quality of life is better because specially trained staff and volunteers focus on comfort, and patients are able to value their time with family and loved ones, in peace and with dignity.

  • We recognize that the best care for our patient may not be possible in a traditional healthcare setting. At Halifax Health – Hospice, our patients receive care in our Care Centers, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals or wherever they call home and are most comfortable.

We offer information, education and resource materials for decision making and advance care planning.

  • Halifax Health - Hospice is committed to honoring our military men and women for their selfless acts of courage.

Our goal is to support the bereaved through a difficult time and provide them with the skills to cope and find happiness again. Bereavement services are available for up to a year and sometimes longer.

  • At Halifax Health - Hospice our focus is to provide extraordinary, compassionate and professional care to our patients and their families.

We follow up with our families to ensure they are receiving support when they need it most.

  • At Halifax Health - Hospice, we believe that children deserve the opportunity to grieve after losing a loved one and have designed programs specifically to meet their needs.

  • The Halifax Health - Hospice Traumatic Loss Program is the only program in the State of Florida designated specifically to meet the needs of those bereaved by a sudden, unnatural death. These specialized services are offered to residents who have experienced a loss due to homicide, suicide, accidents, line of duty, war, terrorism, or natural disaster. This unique program provides a safe, supportive environment that promotes growth, healing and resilience for those traumatically bereaved.

  • Halifax Health - Hospice encourages family caregivers to take care of themselves too. Our Family Caregiver Program is designed to provide additional support to our family caregivers by offering respite relief to caregivers so that they are able to run errands or leave for an extended amount of time, without having to worry about the care of their loved ones.
