Our Mission

Northeast Ohio Hospice promotes the hospice concept of caring and encourages and aids in the development of quality hospice programs for terminally ill patients and their families. We educate the public about hospice care and respond to the needs of the local community with hospice services that are consistent with the medical-moral teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

In fulfilling our mission we commit ourselves to these focuses:

  • Enhance quality of life when quantity is limited
  • Provide comfort when cure is no longer possible
  • Palliative and curative care
  • Recognizes dying as normal
  • Acknowledges grief as a normal response to loss
  • Emphasizes pain and symptom control
  • Family is the unit of care
  • Aware that “family” is often non-traditional
  • Nursing facility staff
  • Friends or partners
