The Guiding Hospice Promise


Hospice first began as a ministry in the 1960s, but has now evolved into big business. This shift can sometimes change the focus from patient care to the “bottom line”. We at Guiding Hospice are dedicated to providing compassionate comfort care to those with terminal illness and their families while maintaining the dignity of human life.

We serve members of ALL faiths. We respect patient and family beliefs and invite discussion and requests regarding specific spiritual needs. Our licensed chaplains serve all faiths with ultimate dignity and respect. Feel free to call for a private consultation prior to admission or as we continue the journey together.


Catholic Faith

Catholic families may be assured we follow Catholic teachings as stated in the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services, issued by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. St. Pope John Paul ll taught that our Lord has passionate concern for the sick and dying and we abide by his teachings.

Guiding Hospice stands on Church doctrine and is aligned with the Vatican’s teachings on end-of-life care. Catholic chaplain services are provided and sacraments may be arranged. Staff member and Catholic Bioethics program director, Judy Rupprecht, RN, is certified in bioethics by the National Catholic Bioethics Center and is available for consultation on request.
