Hospice is a philosophy of caring which respects and values the dignity and worth of each person, and good hospice care is the practical expression of that personal and professional commitment. Hospices care for people approaching death, but hospices cherish and emphasize life, by helping patients (and those who love and care for them) live each day to the fullest.

Hospice Education Institute

The Institute is an independent, not-for-profit organization, serving members of the public and health care professionals with information and education about the many facets of caring for the dying and the bereaved.

We salute the power of the Internet, but we believe that many concerns and problems require personal interaction.

We invite you to telephone us at 800.331.1620 or 207.255.8800 to obtain information about good hospice and palliative care; to get referrals to hospices and palliative
care organizations in the USA, to discuss issues relating to caring for the dying and the bereaved.
