The hospice philosophy recognizes that every person deserves to live out his or her life with respect and dignity, alert and free of pain, in an environment that promotes quality of life.
From its beginnings, hospice has focused on the whole person–body, mind and spirit–with an understanding that serious illness profoundly impacts not only the patient, but also family and loved ones as well.
We here at IHPCO hope to provide you and your loved ones an in-depth understanding of hospice care and the things you should expect during the sometimes difficult journey to end of life.
Indiana has some great hospice programs and services. IHPCO is also here to guide you in making informed consumer choices.
If you have questions or need further clarification on anything you read on our site, please contact us. We're readily available to serve you.

Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.
