You can refer patients and families to Soulistic Hospice with confidence that our highly qualified, diverse, and compassionate staff will provide expert, loving care you want for your patients.

Your patients and their families are more likely to agree to hospice services when they have a conversation with you about it. At the time you determine that a cure is not possible and you make a referral to us, we’ll provide comfort with an emphasis on the quality of life of the patient, along with spiritual support for the family.

Soulistic Hospice admits patients every day, at any time, including evenings and weekends.

Referrals can be directly from you or the hospital. The referral can also be made after a patient is discharged to home or a facility.

We can meet with the patient and their family on the same day as the referral.

Spiritual & Emotional Support

As a medical professional, you know when a cure is not possible. Since hospice emphasizes comfort and quality of life once an illness is incurable, it can improve the patient’s quality of life and extend the patient’s life. Yet many patients and families are reluctant to use hospice. When you have a conversation with them, they’re more likely to accept hospice services.  

End-of-Life-Planning

During the difficult last stages of a serious illness, many people feel that they have lost control over their lives and what will happen to them. They don't realize that they regain control over their treatment by choosing hospice care. All too often, people delay asking their doctor about hospice services but when they finally do, they regret waiting so long. They learn that our patients and their family members are given the opportunity to make decisions that are important to them.
