Why Start Hospice Care?


Hospice care improves quality of life during end of life by ensuring our patients are receiving emotional support and comfort care. When you commit to a hospice care program, you make a commitment to your loved one’s mental, physical, and emotional care.

At Crown Hospice of Cape Girardeau, we believe that you should be enjoying your time with your loved one and celebrating their life, not worrying about if they are receiving quality hospice care. That is why we offer a wide array of hospice, bereavement, and caregiver support services.
