Caregiver Support

Since opening our doors, Carpenter Hospice has recognized the need to support both residents and their family members and/or loved ones throughout the palliative care process. Palliative care is a 24/7 job, whether in the home or in a hospice. We understand that stress and burn-out are very real issues that caregivers face when taking care of their loved ones. The Hospice is leading the way to establish more outreach programs in the community, and to offer more on-site resources to caregivers. We are committed to finding new ways to better support our caregivers.
