Family First Hospice Care services are the right choice for patients and families who need extra support at home. Here, a top team of practitioners provides that support and care.

What Kind of Care Can I Expect from Family First?
As our patient, we provide you with the highest level of comfort and care.
We manage your care across settings. Here’s how it works. Each patient creates a plan for care. For example, you want to reduce pain and symptoms. We help with that. Your better quality of life means fewer hospital stays or treatments. Thus, your care meets your goals.
When you need a higher level of care, we help you remove any stopgaps. Of course, your access to care is our first concern. You shouldn’t worry about getting the care you deserve. The team approach makes it easier for you and your loved ones. We work together to provide the best:
- Comfort care
- Pain relief and wound care
- Mental health care
- Spiritual care
- Respite care
- Grief and loss support
- Holistic methods
- Multi-lingual support
- And more
In all cases, Family First honors your goals and wishes. We work to meet the expectations of patients and caregivers. So we keep open lines of communication. Also, our support includes a native (first) language telecommunication line. If needed, an interpreter makes certain your intent is clear.
Finally, the team commits to support your needs, as shown in the Patient Bill of Rights. As always, respect your values, culture, and beliefs.
At Family First Hospice Care, we accept applicants without regard to race, national origin, color, creed or religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, or ability to pay.
