Non-Profit difference in hospice & palliative care
non-profit difference in hospice & palliative care
Exceptional Care, without Exception - we provide more and better care because we are accountable to our communities
Since 1982, we’ve been providing the care we would want for our own families to people experiencing serious illness. We offer a customized plan for each person based on their goals, needs and preferences.
As a non-profit, we reinvest our earnings into direct care. Support from generous donors allows us to offer extra services that are not covered by Medicare or private insurance, such as:
- Newer, more expensive medications and treatments for optimal symptom control
- Occupational and respiratory therapy
- Art and music therapy
- Enhanced grief support open to any community members
- Caregiver support
CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
As a nonprofit, our charter and volunteer board require that we abide by our mission to deliver exceptional care, without exception. Our mission drives how we deliver care each and every day. Financial support from community members allows us to help people with terminal illness beyond their healthcare - to pay for rent, utilities, groceries and other necessities. We believe that equal access to basic resources is a human right.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE RE: COVID-19
YOUR COMFORT & SAFETY ARE IMPORTANT TO US

Please join us in congratulating Julia Victoria B. Salve, MN, FNP-C, ACHPN for her appointment to the Palliative Care and Quality of Life Interdisciplinary Council (PCAC).
The PCAC was established in 2015 within the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) by Senate Bill 608. Their legislation seeks to improve the lives of children, youths, adults and the elderly who would benefit from palliative care and to facilitate access through better coordination of care.
Additionally, Julia now has privileges to provide palliative consults at OHSU Hillsboro Medical Center.
