The goal of Hopewell House is to provide compassionate, competent care for hospice patients and their families and friends. It serves those who are experiencing severe pain, intractable nausea, seizures, depression, respiratory distress, or other conditions that the patient’s family is unable to cope with. Round-the-clock medical care emphasizes symptom management and support for the whole person.
