.....you need to know whom you can count on for support and care. Welcome to Hospice & Palliative Care of Cape Cod. We?re here for you, wherever you are, whenever you need us most. Founded in 1981, Hospice & Palliative Care of Cape Cod is the area's first and only independent non-profit organization offering hospice services. We are the hospice provider most often cited by local health care professionals as having the best reputation, the one they say their patients would most prefer to use, and to whom they would most likely refer their own family members. End-of-life care is what we do. Our commitment to this important cause means that you and your family receive the benefits of our long-term expertise and dedication, with an emphasis on comfort and caring, rather than curing. We create customized personal support and treatment plans that meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of both patient and family, carried out by our interdisciplinary team. Our staff of over 100 medical and support professionals and more than 200 trained volunteers serve over 800 patients a year, most in private homes, as well as in long-term care facilities, hospitals and our own gracious McCarthy Care Center. We also offer grief support services to any Cape Codder experiencing grief or loss, including children through our unique Kids Grieve Too! Program. Community education is available on a wide variety of topics through our Speakers Bureau. We welcome volunteers in many different roles and provide in-depth screening, training and ongoing support. Donations to help us insure that these services can continue to be offered to all regardless of ability to pay. Anyone may make a referral any time 24/7 at 508-957-0200 or 800-642-2423.
