Saint Barnabas Hospice and Palliative Care Center (of New Jersey)
The mission of the Saint Barnabas Hospice and Palliative Care Center (SBHPCC) is to provide physical, emotional, social and spiritual care to terminally ill individuals and their families. Education, research, advocacy, and community outreach encompassing issues of hospice care, death, bereavement, and loss are integral parts of the program.
Hospice affirms life. It exists to provide support and care for persons in the last stages of an incurable illness. Hospice recognizes that dying is a natural process and is as much a part of life as birth, growth and maturity. Hospice helps families understand and deal with the loss of loved ones. Hospice exists in the hope that through the efforts of a caring community, patients and their caregivers may attain greater physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort in the face of terminal illness.
