About Us

Our Mission:

The mission of Pike County Hospice is to provide physical, emotional, social and spiritual support to terminally ill patients, as well as their families and loved ones, while assisting patients and families to live with dignity and comfort as they cope with end of life issues.

We believe:

  • Hospice affirms life.
  • Hospice recognizes dying as a process and so our care provides comfort rather than cure.
  • Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death.
  • Hospice provides physical, emotional and spiritual care to terminally ill persons and their families.
  • Hospice helps the terminally ill person maintain a quality of life and helps family members through an extremely stressful time in their lives.

Hospice is primarily a home care program, but services may also be provided in a hospital or a nursing home. A hospice team helps the patient and family make informed decisions about care-giving, teaches the necessary skills for “hands-on” care and helps with the approaching and actual death. Hospice also offers help through the bereavement period.

Pike County  Hospice is a county-based hospice service licensed in the state of Missouri. We are committed to ensuring your rights and privileges as a hospice patient.

About Us:

Since 1993 Pike County Hospice has been serving our community, and we look forward to keeping this exceptional service available for years to come.

Pike County Hospice provides specialized care to terminally ill patients and their loved ones.  The Hospice Interdisciplinary Team consists of a medical director, professional nurses, medical social worker, spiritual counselor, home health aides, and volunteers working together to provide care that addresses physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.

 

  • We are proud to be the first Hospice established in Pike County

    In 1993 we officially started offering hospice care to Pike County. Before this, our county did not have local access to quality hospice care, and we are proud to boast that we were able to bring this amazing service to our communities.

  • Pike County Hospice is NOT-FOR-PROFIT

    We will not turn patients away, we will proudly provide services to those in need no matter what the financial standing may be. Our Home Care & Hospice Foundation helps us to guarantee this to our patients and their families.

 

  • We are compassionate

    about ensuring the comfort of both our patients and their families.

 

 

  • We are governed by members of the county

    being one of only FOUR county based hospices in the state of Missouri, our Hospice program is governed by the citizens of our community. These five board members are elected by you, and they willingly volunteer their time to ensure our programs are suiting what is best for the community.

 

  • Our staff are your neighbors

    Majority of them have lived in the community their entire life, and they eagerly await to care for their neighbors; your family. Click here to Meet our Team and see who you already know!
