If they begin hospice care early, many patients with life-limiting illnesses can still enjoy their favorite pastimes. Hosparus helps people face end-of-life issues with as much care and thought as any other milestone in life – so they can enjoy quality of life as much as possible.
For some 35 years, Hosparus, a Joint Commission-accredited nonprofit hospice organization, has provided care, comfort and counseling to those who need it most. Annually, we serve more than 5,500 patients and their families in Kentucky and Indiana. We can help you.

What is hospice and palliative care?
Hospice and palliative care relieves suffering when a cure for an illness is not expected. It involves treatments that enhance a patient's comfort and quality of life. Anyone with a life-limiting illness can access hospice care. Hosparus accepts referrals 24 hours daily. Hosparus caregivers include medical directors, nurses, certified nursing assistants, nurse practitioners, social workers, expressive therapists, chaplains, bereavement counselors, support staff and volunteers who provide compassionate medical treatment and emotional and spiritual support.
