Hospice Hawaii, Inc.

Who We Are

Since 1979, Hospice Hawaii has provided palliative (comfort) care and support to persons with life-limiting illness, and their families. The goal of hospice is to help our patients live as fully as possible, to provide comfort and relief from pain and symptoms during the last months of life and experience a meaningful ending or transition from physical life. The patient and their loved ones are the central focus of all care that our team provides and the comprehensive, interdisciplinary program is designed to support the choices of patients, as well as preserve their dignity and allow them the opportunity to live the remainder of their life as fully as possible in the comfort of their home or chosen setting.
