Locally owned and operated by experienced hospice nurses....
Hospice is a program of care for terminally ill persons which helps families take care of their loved ones at home, allowing that loved one to pass peacefully, with dignity, among family and friends. Many people feel anxious about caring for a terminally ill person at home. You many have no experience in this kind of personal care or perhaps you have worked in the medical field but find the care a challenge. Our hospice program was developed to assist and support patients and families through this experience.
At Bridgeway Healthcare and Hospice, our team members focus on the individualized needs of the patient and their loved ones, offering them a choice. We provide services in the Home, Nursing Facility, Assisted Living Facility, or Independent Living Facility.
The care and service offered by Bridgeway is the treatment of symptoms associated with the hospice diagnosis with a focus on an overall improvement of quality of life. As one nears the end of life and modern medicine and treatment are no longer an option, our team can be there for you to provide comfort and companionship.

Expert Nursing Care available 24/7/365 for emergencies
