celebrating the sanctity of life
providing compassionate end-of-life care
and comfort the grieving
"There is always light in the darkness and comfort in memories"
Light Up A Life is an opportunity to celebrate the memory of a loved one or honor someone that makes life a bit brighter. This year when you make a Light Up A Life dedication a symbolic light will illuminate the Hoffmann Hospice Home throughout the Holiday season. Out of an abundance of caution and respect for the safety of the families that usually attend Light Up A Life, this year's celebration will be a virtual event. Although we will not gather in person, we will still honor those we hold close to our hearts and remember the beautiful ways they have enriched our lives with a virtual reading ceremony.

What is Hospice?
Hospice is a special way of caring for someone when a cure is no longer realistic. The focus of hospice is on care – compassionate care that enables patients to continue an alert, pain-free life surrounded by those they love. Hospice provides care that includes the family in all decisions.
Hospice care neither prolongs nor hastens death, but provides specialized support during the transition from this life to the next. Most of all, the call for hospice does not signify the end of hope, but simply a change of focus. Patients who get better or wish to seek active treatment for their terminal illness, may discontinue hospice service and go back at a later time.
