Our mission is to provide comprehensive coordinated care to individuals with life limiting illnesses and to their families and to support them in the process of death and bereavement.

We provide a plan of treatment customized to meet individual patient and family needs and are locally owned and operated. Our goal is to provide palliative care that addresses the physical, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of service for the terminally ill as an integrated whole.



Serving the counties of Tama, Benton, Linn, Poweshiek, Iowa, Johnson, Keokuk and Washington, we provide locally based staff who can respond quickly when you need it.

In addition to medical care, we also offer spiritual , social, and emotional care for the entire family. Our skilled staff can help you and your family make important decisions with grace and dignity, recognizing that the focus of a person’s life is not their disease, but their essence.
