Carpenter Hospice – Making Moments Matter

The health and well-being of residents, staff, volunteers and our community is our #1 priority and we thank you for patience and understanding as we work through navigating providing exceptional hospice care during this time.

Carpenter Hospice updated response to COVID-19:

  • Visitors: Visitor restrictions are in place and we ask you to call ahead to confirm with staff your eligibility for visiting. 
  • Volunteers: Limited volunteer activities are taking place.

While COVID-19 has changed some aspects of how we work, it has not changed the philosophy of hospice care and we are excited to welcome residents into our hospice at 2250 Parkway Drive.

Carpenter Hospice is a home in the heart of Burlington that offers both residential-based care to people in the last stages of their lives, and community-based programs for people dealing with grief or a life-limiting illness. It lets residents spend their final days together with loved ones in an environment that is peaceful, comfortable and meaningful. It is staffed by a dedicated team of professionals and volunteers who provide compassionate palliative care to meet residents' every need and ensure that each moment matters.

Carpenter Hospice has been an integral part of Burlington since 2002 thanks to the generosity of the community and is committed to providing support services for those going through life's transitions.
