We have deep roots throughout our eight-county service, supporting individuals and their loved ones in the Big Bend. The mission of Big Bend Hospice is to provide compassionate care to individuals with a life limiting illness, comfort to their families, and emotional support to anyone who has lost a loved one.

Why Big Bend Hospice?
Each day, families deal with the difficult responsibility of caring for a companion, friend, or loved one living with a terminal illness.

Whether it’s spending precious moments with family and friends or taking up a new hobby— with Big Bend Hospice, patients and families find peace and enjoyment in what matters most to them. There is hope with hospice, and it can be found with Big Bend Hospice.
