Mayo Clinic Hospice

Mayo Clinic Hospice is a not-for-profit hospice that provides home-based, family-centered care for individuals of any age facing a terminal illness.

Hospice recognizes dying as part of the normal process of living, affirms life and therefore neither hastens nor postpones death. When hospice care becomes the treatment of choice, there is a shift from curative to supportive care measures. The primary focus becomes living as fully and as comfortably as possible.

Mayo Clinic Hospice is a supportive home-based service committed to:

  • Compassionate care that respects your dignity and honors your individual needs
  • An interdisciplinary team approach to meet your physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs
  • Using proven best-practice interventions to promote comfort and relieve pain
  • Accompanying you and your family through end-of-life care and death in the setting of your choice and in a manner that suits your needs
  • Providing individualized bereavement support for you and your family

Mayo Clinic Hospice is Medicare-licensed and provides services to anyone with a terminal illness who lives in:

  • Dodge, Fillmore, Olmsted and Wabasha counties
  • Parts of Goodhue, Mower and Winona counties, on a case-by-case basis

Hospice care is provided by a team of professionals that includes doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, volunteers and pharmacists.

Volunteers are a vital part of the team who offer services such as light housekeeping, caregiver respite, meal preparation, socialization or companionship.
