Crater Community Hospice

Crater Community Hospice provides care where the patient lives (home or nursing facility) or in a hospital setting.

The care is provided by a team of hospice professionals and volunteers who provide physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual support to the patient and family.

The Crater Community Hospice Care Team includes a:

  • physician, a nurse
  • hospice aide
  • social worker
  • chaplain
  • bereavement counselor and trained volunteers

Since 1995, we have provided patient care, caregiver support and bereavement services to help families make the most of every day.
