Quality Time After Diagnosis
Hospice care is designed to give supportive care to individuals in the final phase of a terminal illness. Hospice focuses on comfort and quality of life, rather than a cure. Our goal is to enable patients to participate in their care as much as possible and to be comfortable and pain free.
Beyond medical care, we offer advance care planning, caregiver support, spiritual care and bereavement support services. Learn how to bridge the gap between curative treatment and end-of-life-care with our Bridge Program.
We are a proud participant in the We Honor Veterans program and value the importance of honoring our veteran patients.
We coordinate care with the patient’s physician, who assists in supervising all services. Hospice services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans. Our staff will work with the patient’s insurance company to authorize care and coordinate benefits. A Masonic affiliation is not required to request services.

Letters of Love
“I would like to thank Masonic Village Hospice for all of their help with my dad, who passed away in January. After 65 years of marriage, my mom struggles a bit, but I am completely at peace, and I think it is because of the ending we had with the help of the hospice team there. It was a difficult road, but they helped all the way. … They went above and beyond for us. My dad was in a hospital in another state. … It was clear to me that time was short, and I wanted to bring him to my home to care for him. Masonic Village Hospice obtained all of the records from the hospital. They agreed to help. They had all of the equipment here the next day and, when the ambulance arrived at my home, they sent out a nurse immediately to help us get settled. I can’t praise them enough!”
“Mother was tenderly cared for by what our family experienced as an extraordinary team of care givers. We honor their ministry to Mother and to us. Hospice was instrumental in allowing her to end her earthly life with dignity and in peace. We are deeply grateful.”
“It is with my deepest gratitude that I would like to thank each and every one of you for the compassion, kindness, spiritual and loving care that you provided to my dear mother. You do not have an easy job but God has given you a unique talent and skills, and you use them exceptionally well. I thank God every day for wonderful people like you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“We would like to thank the hospice staff for our dad’s care and their support during his decline. The team’s caring, compassion, support, knowledge and professionalism in guiding us through the dying process were above and beyond expectation. Dad enjoyed his time spent with each and every one of them. They were his family when family could not be there.”
“My dear hospice friends, allow me this opportunity to thank all of you for the wonderful care you gave my wife. It was a remarkable experience, after so many years as a hospice medical director, to stand on the other side and receive your care, concern and deep compassion. I was – and remain – moved by your love. While I miss my partner of 59 years, I am comforted that she is now in God’s hands.”
“Everyone who was involved in providing care for my wife was outstanding. All were so gracious and helpful in answering my questions, offering assistance and guiding us through my wife’s gradual dying. She received the best care imaginable. I was put at ease about caring for her so I could focus on just being with her.”
“I write on behalf of my family to thank you for the thoughtful and timely care and comfort you provided for our mother, as well as all of us. I am still struck by your timely assessment and management of mother’s status and pain. Your assurance that she would not be in pain helped me be able to really be with her as she passed. We are grateful for the support and services of hospice during these heart rendering moments, and we want to thank you for your professionalism, respectfulness and outstanding care for mother and us during our time with you.”
