Hospice Care for Seniors in Nassau County, Port Washington

Making every day count.

When a loved one is diagnosed as having a terminal condition, it’s not unusual for family members to feel fear, anxiety and even loss of hope. In reality, hospice services here at The Tuttle Center can be a tremendous source of comfort, while maximizing quality of life during one’s remaining days. We develop a care plan to meet the personal goals of each individual and his or her family.

Our hospice team remains on duty 24/7, providing palliative care so your loved one’s remaining time may be spent in peace and dignity. We also provide support and education to family members and caregivers to help them understand what is happening at any particular point in time, and what to expect moving forward. Together, we work through the emotional, social and spiritual matters in their lives, to prepare for the changes that lie ahead.
