Why Choose Aleca Hospice
Terminal and life-limiting conditions not only affect patients but also their families and friends. Hospice services from Aleca Hospice first and foremost provide patients with comfort and solace when they need it most. Through our holistic approach to hospice care, we also work with families and loved ones to give patients the means with which to live out their lives in a dignified manner in the comfort of their homes.
It all starts with our physician-led team of healthcare professionals. Aleca’s team of skilled nurses, counselors, volunteers, and bereavement coordinators simultaneously provides health-related and emotional support to both patients and their families. Our hospice approach not only addresses a patient’s medical condition, but it also recognizes the importance of family in one’s end-of-life journey. Rather than facing this journey alone, Aleca Hospice Care works in tandem with the existing support system of patient families. By evaluating and addressing the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of a patient’s situation, we execute a coordinated effort to create an environment of comfort and care.
Under Aleca Hospice Care, your loved one’s care will be supervised by their primary physician. All orders and prescriptions will be followed and implemented by our staff of skilled nurses, social workers, bereavement coordinators, and home health aides. These professionals are assisted by additional volunteers who may provide emotional support to family members or temporary respite care.
Additionally, as a patient’s condition progresses, their assistive technology and medical equipment needs may change. With Aleca Hospice Care, we provide access to all of the necessary medical supplies needed to ensure the highest quality of healthcare for your loved one.
At Aleca, we recognize that our loved ones all have different needs. That is why our physician-led approach meets both medical needs and the emotional needs of a family. Compassionate, flexible, and highly skilled, our hospice team can make each end-of-life journey an empowering experience.

A Word From Our Patients
Joy Caldwell has been the nurse for my husband since he entered hospice care. We have found her to be kind, caring, patient and extremely professional. Most importantly, Joy and the Aleca team have always responded in ways which provide us with the answers we need to meet the challenges we face. I fully trust their judgment, advice and expertise. I rely upon them to help me understand the choices and the decisions I need to make as I care for my husband. Their warmth, kindness and generosity means everything to us. Joe and I always feel safe and valued in the care of Joy and Natalie, too, not only as professionals but also as people who truly love and care for us.
