Hospice care is a philosophy of care that focuses on enhancing the quality of life for patients with life-limiting illnesses. It is not about “giving up”, but rather about providing compassionate care that encourages patients to remain in control of their lives while remaining as comfortable as possible.

Testimonials from Hospice Care Families
"The hospice team was extremely professional and compassionate, providing our family with the support and guidance needed to make this difficult transition. The team provided us with not only medical care, but emotional support as well. We also appreciated the family-focused approach taken by the hospice team. It was a time of sorrow and heartache, but it was also a time of love and appreciation for the wonderful care they provided. We will always be thankful for the incredible care and compassion that was given to us during this difficult time."
“I couldn’t have been helped anymore. Every step of the way, I was guided by hospice. They were terrific, helping me right down to the last minute.”
I was so grateful for the hospice care provided to my Dad at St Paul’s. The kindness and compassion the team showed my Dad was truly a gift. I live about 2 hours from Kaukauna and my siblings were even farther away, so the daily visits and companionship from the hospice team gave me such peace of mind, knowing my Dad was connecting in person every day with caring people. They were also amazing about providing regular updates about his day and their interactions with him. I’m so appreciative of all they did for my Dad and for me during such an emotionally challenging time.
