Harbor Light Hospice Illinois
Our mission is to facilitate access to dignified, end-of-life care and quality services that allow our patients and families the hospice option to live life richly, deeply and meaningfully for as long as it lasts.
Harbor Light Hospice understands that the quality of life is valued by our patients and their families and we strive to develop lasting partnerships with them to make the hospice experience special and memorable. We care for people with all end-stage diagnoses, including: Alzheimer's, Pulmonary Disease, CHS, Cancer, Liver Disease, Dementia, Parkinson's, Renal Disease, Hunington's Disease and ALS.
Harbor Light Hospice provides individualized hospice services wherever our patients and families call home. This may include a personal residence, nursing facility, assisted living residence or a hospital. The care provided by Harbor Light Hospice does not replace those services provided by the assisted living or nursing home staff. Harbor Light Hospice is an additional support system with individualized care provided by our Interdisciplinary Hospice Team; we communicate regularly with the Nursing Facility to ensure we work together to meet your loved one's care, needs and goals for compassionate quality of life.
THE GOAL OF HOSPICE CARE IS TO HELP A PERSON'S LAST MONTHS BE AS FULFILLING AND COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE.
Hospices depend on volunteers, without the effort of volunteers, hospices could not continue their important work. Volunteers are the backbone of the hospice team. They form close bonds with patients and family members, help people communicate and grieve with the family.
