For more than 30 years, Hosparus, a fully accredited non-profit hospice organization, has provided care, comfort and counseling for people facing life-limiting illnesses in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Hosparus cares for more than 5,500 patients and their families each year.
We help people face end-of-life issues with as much care and thought as any other milestone in life so they can enjoy the best quality of life possible. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we care for patients and families regardless of their ability to pay.
We offer a measure of control in situations that can seem out of control. Those who have used our services tell us that there is comfort in knowing what to do and what to expect in this part of life.
Hospice and palliative care relieves suffering when a cure for an illness is not expected. It involves treatments that enhance a patient's comfort and quality of life. Anyone with a life-limiting illness can access hospice care. Hosparus accepts referrals 24 hours daily. Hosparus caregivers include medical directors, nurses, certified nursing assistants, nurse practitioners, social workers, expressive therapists, chaplains, bereavement counselors, support staff and volunteers who provide compassionate medical treatment and emotional and spiritual support.
