We are more than just Hospice

Imagine you or a family member has just received the news. Imagine feeling lost, scared and alone.
Now, imagine that someone is here to help.
Delaware Hospice seeks to provide care for the entire family, through their entire illness. We treat the mental, physical, and spiritual needs of our patients and their loved ones. The one thing our patients need most of all is hope. Hope to spend their remaining time in comfort and love. That is something that we can offer every patient.

And you can help.

Every new patient will receive a cozy WRAPPED IN LOVE blanket.  Imagine chasing away the fear, anger and loneliness with this beautiful warm blanket, reminding you that Delaware Hospice is here for you at every turn. Each $25 donation will purchase a blanket for a new patient, reminding them that their family, friends and community are here to support them.

During Carol’s time with Delaware Hospice, she received a loving blanket. Her husband commented, “It fits perfectly on Carol’s lap in her wheelchair as we go for walks. It is also nice, to have on the foot of the bed to ensure her feet are warm.”

Every person that donate $50 or more on #DoMore24DE will receive a ticket to an exclusive virtual concert with Jimmie Allen on Friday, March 5 at 8 PM. "I say it with pride—I am a Delaware native. I love the small town I'm from, Milton, and I love the entire state of Delaware. And any time I can give back to my home state I'm all for it." - Jimmie Allen 

The power of warmth and love is amazing. Thank you for being a part of the healing and care that we do everyday. Thank you for believing in our mission and our community.

About Delaware Hospice

Mission: Delaware Hospice supports every individual, family, and community with compassionate and expert care for serious illness. We provide advanced illness management through our programs and services: Delaware Transitions, Delaware Palliative, Delaware Hospice, Delaware Hospice Center, Katybug Pediatric Program, Bereavement and New Hope.

We are more than just Hospice.
Delaware Hospice offers many different programs designed to meet you and your family, at whatever stage of an illness you are in.

Delaware Hospice helps patients and families focus on their time together and get back to what’s important. In addition to attending to your family’s practical and physical needs, our trained specialists help you navigate any emotional and spiritual concerns that may arise in the face of a life-limiting illness. 

Delaware Palliative offers relief to seriously ill patients who are receiving active, curative treatment. Assistance is provided to identify goals of care and manage symptoms while dealing with the physical and psychosocial burdens of a serious illness.

Delaware Transitions helps seriously ill individuals who are not ready for medical support, find help. Clients benefit from gaining information about community services, and receive advice on how to adjust to new challenges. 

The Delaware Hospice Center is the first of its kind in Delaware, providing comprehensive, specialized, 24/7 care to patients in need of critical, short-term symptom management.

Katybug our pediatric program, helps children facing a serious illness live well while improving their quality of life and helping their families cope with the challenges and feelings that are a natural part of their journey. 

Bereavement support is offered to all family members before and after a loved one passes and continues for thirteen months after loss through a variety of workshops and support groups. 

New Hope, our children and teen bereavement program, targets children struggling with an expected or unexpected loss. Camp New Hope offers campers the opportunity to meet others going through similar experiences to interact in traditional and bereavement activities.

It's never too early to call. Let us help you, so you can focus on what matters.
