End of Life Care

Trusted, local care when it matters most.

If you are wondering about these services, chances are you or someone you love is facing a life-limiting illness. When cure is no longer an option, Midland Care can help. When people hear the word “hospice” they can become fearful about what it all means. At Midland Care it means hope, comfort and support at all times.

It means a staff committed to providing care to patients and families that put focus on the hope for each new day. It means an experienced staff to provide comfort to each patient through effective pain and symptom management. It means staff are available to provide care, education, and emotional and spiritual counseling to support each patient and family through what can be a very stressful and difficult moment – yet a very precious time.
