About Us

Core Purpose:  To protect the dignity, comfort and autonomy of those facing life-limiting illness, end of   life and grief through education and compassionate service.


Hospice of Anchorage works with the patient and family along with the patient's physician and the hospice interdisciplinary team – volunteers, nurses, social service and bereavement coordinators – to provide assistance during the transition from life through death and to cope with loss and grief. This may be periodic contact or grow into an ongoing relationship lasting weeks, months, or even years. All services are provided free of cost.


Hospice care offers people with life-limiting illness the opportunity to live fully. Hospice care also supports families and other loved ones in coping with the impacts and challenges an illness can have on everyone. We are currently the only Hospice program in Anchorage that serves patients who are minors.

  • Nursing consultations for initial and periodic assessment and education regarding symptom management and end-of-life care
  • Patient and family education about disease progression
