Specialty Care Programs
Bristol Hospice has developed specialty care programs that are guided by the values of our mission statement – that all patients and families entrusted to our care will be treated with the highest level of compassion, respect, and quality of care – and clinical research. Bristol Hospice is honored to be an innovator and going above & beyond what is expected by hospice care standards; utilizing non-pharmacological methods of comfort through our specialty care programs.
These Bristol programs, such as “Sweet Dreams” and “Bright Moments” are especially helpful to those struggling with the effects of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Through these programs, we hope to give “Light to Life” for each patient at their end-of-life. In so doing, we have the honor to provide additional methods of care, comfort and support for the patient, their families, caregivers and loved ones.
Bristol Hospice is “The Place of the Bridge”, and it is our privilege to walk this bridge in life with you, “Embracing a Reverence for Life”
