At Delaware Hospice, we play a critical role in helping people navigate one of life’s most challenging journeys.

Since 1982, we’ve helped over 105,000 patients and their families thrive in the face of serious illness—regardless of their ability to pay. Our team of compassionate experts takes a holistic approach to providing patients and families with top-quality care that meets the rigorous standards for third-party accreditation by The Joint Commission.

As the region’s leading licensed nonprofit community-based healthcare organization, we offer more than high-quality hospice and palliative care.

Our community outreach programs help children cope with loss, provide seriously ill members of the community with nonmedical assistance, and help grieving individuals reinvest in life.

“I just love Gloria. She makes me feel good when I'm down and she's just like family to me. Some days I don't feel like showering and she just sits with me and we talk. That means more to me than anything else.”

Thanks to generous donors, we can do what’s best for each patient and family without compromise.
Even when Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance benefits don’t cover all of the costs of our programs and services, our supporters enable us to provide compassionate, expert care to our community.
