Mission: The team at Tridia Hospice has one goal...to help you live your life in the ways that matter to you. Hospice is a set of services, rather than a place, that helps patients and families address the many issues that arise at the end of life. When an illness no longer responds to curative treatments or a patient chooses to stop further aggressive treatments, hospice offers a full range of care aimed at comfort rather than cure. At the center of hospice care is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.
