Exceptional Care. Every Day.
No one should have to face end-of-life decisions or a chronic illness alone. CarePartners Hospice & Palliative Care offers physical, emotional and spiritual support to patients with life-limiting or terminal illnesses.
We’re dedicated to treating our patients and their loved ones with respect and compassion, and to providing the highest quality of life and comfort possible.
Our staff at CarePartners Hospice has been awarded the Hospice Honors from Deyta, the company that sends satisfaction surveys to all families following the death or discharge of a patient. The Hospice Honors award is a prestigious award recognizing hospice agencies providing the best patient care as rated by the patient’s caregiver. This award recognizes the top 100 agencies in the country that continuously provide the highest levels of satisfaction through their care as measured from the caregiver's point of view.
You don’t have to make this decision alone. Give us a call at (828) 255-0231 or ask your health care providers if CarePartners is the right choice for you or your loved one.

Did You Know?
- Hospice care is not just for the terminally ill; in fact, hospice services can help patients and families manage care of a loved one with chronic, yet declining, health problems who remains at home.
- Seeking out hospice care is neither “giving up” nor something that hastens death. On the contrary, the goal of hospice support is to increase patient comfort as much as possible, as well as provide care for the caregivers.
