Hospice nurse with end-stage cardiac failure patient

The final stages of heart failure can be a roller coaster of good days and bad days. Many people are living longer with congestive heart failure. New therapies are often able to slow the progression of the disease.


At Compassus, we support your efforts to continue medical therapies. If you've exhausted your options and have started the hospice conversation, we're here to help you maintain the best quality of life, all the way to the very end.


Hospice is not about giving up, it’s about managing symptoms and stresses so families can embrace every moment they have together. Call one of our locations for referrals, information or simply to talk about options.
