Bridging the Gap

Hospice Criteria

Crossroads Hospice provides a team of caring experts that visit the patient and family wherever they may call home. We can provide our services to patients in their private homes, nursing facilities or residential homes that we have a contract with. Our team will develop a unique plan of care specifically for the patient and family. We focus on a philosophy of care that emphasizes comfort care, rather than a curative treatment.
