Non-Profit difference in hospice & palliative care
non-profit difference in hospice & palliative care
It's simple - we provide more and better care because we are accountable to our communities
Since 1982, Care Partners has provided exceptional hospice and palliative care to thousands of individuals and families. We create customized support plans to encompass physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
As a non-profit we reinvest the majority of our profits into direct care, including more expensive treatments than are usually available in hospice. We also provide extra support services that are not covered by Medicare or private insurance under the hospice benefit, from specialists such as occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, and art and music therapists.
Our staff care deeply about their patients and families. They routinely go “above and beyond” in managing challenges to provide peace, comfort and security. Even after our patients pass away, we have our own memorial service every other week, where staff share what touched them most about each patient and send good wishes to their family and friends.
CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Since our founding in 1982, we have provided person-centered, culturally-sensitive care to everyone who comes to us in need of serious illness support as they approach end of life. As a non-profit, our charter and community volunteer board require that we abide by our mission: exceptional care, without exception. This mission determines how we deliver care each day. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to help people without insurance coverage, and provide the extra services that we believe should be accessible despite the current limitations of hospice and palliative care reimbursement. When someone with terminal illness come to us without a place to live, or money for groceries, utility bills and other necessities, we step in – while we advocate for an end to the policies that cause these inequalities. We support equal access to healthcare for all.
