Hospice

When a person has a terminal illness and can no longer benefit from curative treatment, St. Camillus Hospice brings caring relief and comfort to the end of life experience.

Our compassionate and Wholistic Care approach enables a terminally ill person to live the rest of their life in the familiar surroundings of their own home. In a place they feel comfortable and with the people they love.

The St. Camillus Hospice team is focused on maintaining the dignity and respect due to an individual while responding to their physiological, psychological, spiritual and sociological needs. It’s a Wholistic Care approach – being responsive to each of the specific needs of the whole person, in a timely manner.

St. Camillus Hospice Milwaukee Care is delivered by an interdisciplinary team. That in itself distinguishes us. Now add the Wholistic Care approach to how we deliver care, and the combination makes St. Camillus Hospice Care world-class.

Since 1985, we have been providing home health care for our St. Camillus campus residents and for Milwaukee and Waukesha County residents who have chosen to not make their home with us.

Contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation.  We have a wealth of resources to share with you.
