When you choose TRU Hospice, you’ll remain in the care of your primary physician and also receive assistance from an experienced TRU Care Team. Your Care Team will work with you and your doctor to develop a plan for care that is tailored to your specific needs and preferences. This care plan can change any time your wishes do. What’s more, with our holistic, family-centered approach, we also educate and support your loved ones, guiding and assisting them every step of the way.

Moreover, we’re available to support you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you want to remain at home, but symptoms require an increase in nursing management, we offer TRU Continuous Care one-on-one professional nursing, until the symptoms are well managed and regular Care Team visits can be resumed.
