Hope Hospice: Comforting Care at End of Life

Hospice is a special type of care that provides physical and emotional comfort to individuals with serious illness, offering compassionate medical and emotional support when a cure is no longer possible. With specialized knowledge in pain and symptom management, a team of professionals will support you and your entire family through the end of life journey.

Hope Hospice has been licensed by the state of Florida since 1984, serving Lee, Hendry, and Glades counties. Services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and many insurances. As a not-for-profit, community support allows Hope to help everyone, regardless of ability to pay.

Hope Palliative Care

If you’re living with serious illness, you may struggle with physical, emotional, and practical challenges. Hope Palliative Care offers additional help to relieve your symptoms, like pain or shortness of breath, while you continue the treatment you’re already receiving. Palliative care can be provided for people of all ages – at any stage of illness. With this support, you may avoid hospital admissions or frequent emergency room visits.

Hope Visiting Nurses

“If I had special ordered my preferences for care, I would have chosen my nurse and physical therapist! They were equally proficient in their fields – thorough, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and kind. They answered my questions and explained their services as it pertained to my particular needs. I enjoyed their visits and looked forward to them. They each helped me tremendously, and I miss seeing them!”

Contact Hope Visiting Nurses directly by calling 239-337-4848 for our current rates, schedules, and minimum hour requirements. We operate under Florida license #HHN 21277096.

Hope Parkinson Program

We work closely with like-minded community organizations to provide a network of resources and education for people affected by Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders. After launching in 2009, the Hope Parkinson Program has enabled more than 3,000 people in Lee County to experience the fullness of life through knowledge, movement, and fellowship. This helpful program is offered at no charge to participants and care partners.

If you’re interested in joining our group, please go to the Hope Parkinson website for sign up forms, event calendars, and resources.

Hope Kids Care

We offer comforting care for children with complex medical conditions and their families – those facing the unthinkable challenges of spina bifida, cerebral palsy, autoimmune disorders, or traumatic injuries. Hope Kids Care helps these brave little ones and their caregivers in their own homes. Our nurses find ways to manage pain and symptoms, while educating family members on how to help. Counselors arrange necessary transportation or food assistance while providing emotional support too. Through community donations, we are able to provide care that’s not otherwise covered by insurance.

For detailed information on the many types of support that we provide to infants, children, and teens, please visit the Hope Kids Care website.

Hope Connections

We provide special care for at-risk seniors living in Hendry and Glades counties. Our comprehensive support includes food, home-delivered meals, and social meal centers located in Clewiston, LaBelle, and Moore Haven.

Hope Connections participants will benefit from transportation to our centers and other essential appointments. Help is available for homemaking, chores, and personal care. We also offers vital support for caregivers and counseling services. A personal emergency response system, medical equipment, supplies, and home modifications will allow seniors to stay safely at home.
