Let Our Family Support Yours
As a Harvard Medical School affiliate, Hebrew SeniorLife’s mission is to help older adults maximize their potential at every stage of life. It is through that same lens that we approach hospice care.
Guided as much as possible by each patient’s personal preferences and care goals, Hebrew SeniorLife Hospice Care works to bring meaning and fulfillment during the final stage of life, in addition to providing comfort and management of symptoms related to a patient’s illness.
Hebrew SeniorLife Hospice Care is uniquely knowledgeable in Jewish traditions, with a pastoral team trained to serve all. We honor the diversity of Jewish sensibilities and spiritual perspectives around life and death. As desired, we are able to offer guidance informed by Jewish values and traditions in line with each patient’s orientation. The sanctity of life and dignity of each individual are foremost in Jewish thought and in our patient care.
With a deep-rooted appreciation for the universal spiritual dimensions of life, our hospice care team is also trained to meet the spiritual needs of patients of all religions, cultures, races, sexual orientations, gender expressions, and class backgrounds.
