Hospice is a special type of care created to provide sensitivity and support for people in the final phase of a terminal illness and to provide support for their families as well. It is based on the idea that, with medical and emotional assistance, death can be prepared for and can happen at home in an atmosphere of comfort, caring, kindness and dignity.

Tanner Hospice Care treats the emotional and spiritual needs of patients in addition to their physical needs, believing that the quality of life is as important as the length of life. Patients are able to be at home, alert and free of pain, among the people and things that they love.
