Why Choose Iowa River Hospice

Dear Friends,

When curative care turns to comfort care please consider your choices of hospice provider carefully.  You do have a choice in hospice care and all hospices aren’t the same!

We are the only local hospice, founded in 1983 by a dedicated group of volunteers that saw a need and worked diligently to bring loving, quality, end of life care to our area.   The Hospice Home opened in 2009 and provides tender loving care to those who need additional support. Our Home is here due to the generosity of those who saw a need and again opened their hearts to make it a reality.

The goals of care are determined by our patients and their families.  We truly listen to you and are flexible to your needs.  Our team can come to your home and deliver the care and support you and your family needs at this challenging time.

Our local staff is known for compassionate loving care.  Put simply we do whatever it takes to comfort and support patients entrusted into our care.  It is an honor to make that journey with each patient we serve. 

Our team of professionals and trained volunteers are your friends and neighbors living in the communities we serve.   We have likely cared for someone you may know as we have been helping people just like you since 1983. 

Service groups and businesses donate their time and energy to make the Hospice Home grounds peaceful and beautiful.  We further benefit from our volunteer Board of Directors who contribute their professional skills and talents to guide our organization.

You do have a choice in hospice care.  We sincerely hope you choose Iowa River Hospice.  Please contact us to learn more about the compassionate care and support we offer.
