Lakeland Area Hospice
We focus on Life.
Why Lakeland Area Hospice?
Lakeland provides a palliative approach to hospice care. Our team of experienced healthcare professionals offers much-needed help to anyone during this difficult time. Lakeland will address physical, emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial needs which are unique to each individual and family. We work closely with your physician to address your specific goals. If you do not have a personal physician one of our team physicians will direct your care. Lakeland Area Hospice services are available in Erie, Crawford, Venango, Warren, and Mercer Counties of Pennsylvania.
What is Hospice?
Hospice is not a place. It is a philosophy of care. Hospice takes a compassionate approach to healthcare when the goal is comfort rather than cure. Respect, dignity, compassion are the goals of hospice while providing medical care that addresses the physical, emotional, and psychosocial goals of both patients and their families. Hospice is available to anyone facing a life-limiting illness.
