Mission Statement Hospice of Citrus County, Inc./Hospice of the Nature Coast a non-profit, charity organization provides support and care for persons in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

We exist in the hope and belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental, physical and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.

Hospice care is a comprehensive service available to terminally ill patients and their families during the last months of life. As an alternative to conventional medical care, hospice care seeks neither to prolong nor to shorten life, but to make the lives of the terminal patient, his or her family members and friends as comfortable and satisfying as possible. Hospice care provides medical, psychological, spiritual, social and financial support to the dying patient and his or her family. Hospice personnel are skilled in providing medications, medical equipment and supplies, education and care to reduce the pain, symptoms and stress that often accompany terminal illness. In addition to physical care, hospice provides emotional and spiritual support for the patient and family along with practical assistance with advance directives and funeral arrangements. Support for family and friends continue after the patient’s death through grief counseling and community support groups.

The majority of hospice care is provided in the home setting by a care team that includes the patient, family members, physicians, hospice staff, volunteers and other community resources. When a patient is not able to remain at home, hospice care can be provided in any institutional setting such as a hospital, nursing home, assisted living facility, group home or Hospice House.
