Caring for You at Home
Our goal at Casa de la Luz Hospice is to allow you to remain in your own home during the last months of your life. The focus of hospice is comfort, not cure. We can provide care and support to you in whatever your place of residence is—private home, nursing home, or assisted living facility. Because we have the flexibility of providing care in any setting, a plan of care is developed for you, and adjustments are easily made as your health changes. In order to provide professional and enduring hospice care in the home setting, a primary caregiver must be available.
Casa de la Luz Hospice provides care to individuals in the following communities: Tucson, Vail, Saddlebrooke, Marana, Oro Valley, Picture Rocks, Catalina, Oracle, San Manuel, and Mammoth.
