At TRU Hospice, we know that this is a very difficult and vulnerable time for you. Because you may have been fighting your illness for months or even years, considering hospice now may feel like a kind of surrender.

As your focus shifts from a cure to quality of life, our goal is to help ease your burden and enable you to live every day that remains as fully as possible. Our pledge is to respect your wishes, protect your dignity and help you celebrate and complete your life at home, in comfort, surrounded by the people you love.
