What do we do?
At Duke Hospice, our goal is to help patients and their caregivers face the end of life with comfort, dignity, and compassion.
Duke Hospice provides palliative care to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our patients and their loved ones. We provide care in patients' homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and our hospice inpatient facilities in Hillsborough and Durham. Duke Hospice is JC accredited.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care specializes in managing the symptoms associated with a terminal illness - physically, emotionally and spiritually. Patients are given comfort oriented care rather than curative care.
