What makes varco hospice different

You don’t have to give up hope to get hospice.  Many patients and the loved ones who care for them say they wish hospice care had started sooner.

Treatments that provide our patients with comfort and relief can continue, uninterrupted, even after we’ve started providing hospice care.

We don’t require that advance directive choices be made such as a “do not resuscitate” order (DNR) or living will to begin providing hospice care.

When you need care, we’re ready to provide it. Any day of the year, any time of the day, we can initiate hospice care for you or your loved one.

We’re fully accredited by ACHC, the Accreditation Commission for Health Care. We’ve chosen to follow their additional requirements in order to help advance the highest standards of community-based care.

As mutual care providers, we work closely with your health care professionals to make sure specific protocols are followed closely.  Wherever you are in your healthcare journey, we are there to meet you.
