Why Altus Hospice
Because We’re All About You
Altus Hospice is absolutely dedicated to those we serve. We view our work as a sacred honor and go to great lengths to provide quality care. Our patient-focused approach hinges on creating a plan of care that is tailored to the unique needs and desires of the individual and their family.
ALTUS HOSPICE FOCUSES ON THE PATIENT, NOT THE DISEASE.
We realize that dying is a part of life and believe that every person has a right to choose how their final days are spent. Our interdisciplinary care team operates with quality of life and preservation of dignity as their primary focus.
WE EMPHASIZE QUALITY AND DIGNITY.
One of our main goals is to assist in making the individual as comfortable as possible and to empower the patients so they can continue to participate in life as fully as their condition allows.
WE CONSIDER IT A PRIVILEGE TO SERVE IN THIS AREA.
We are tied to the communities we serve and have a vested interest in helping improve the lives of the people here.
The Altus Mission
The Mission of Altus Hospice is to provide professional care with a personal touch. We accomplish this by focusing on both the patient and their family. We will treat the disease process with medical expertise while emphasizing quality living, not only physically, but also psychosocially, emotionally and spiritually. Comfort, compassion and calming presence are the gifts we bring to this service, and we are honored to walk with the patient and loved ones through this special time.
Our job is a sacred one, one which we view as a privilege. The Altus Hospice staff has a duty to treat each individual under our care, as well as our fellow team members, with the utmost respect, while honoring each individual’s choices and core values. To that end, we will listen intently, respond accordingly and serve humbly.
We truly aim to be highly professional yet compassionately personal, and it is this desire that gives us direction, motivation and energy to serve with purpose, honor and dignity.
