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 140,000 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.

“…the time I spent with him was precious and I got to know him all over again with these (hospice) visits, but I couldn't have done it without these special people in my life and his. Delaware Hospice is such a wonderful organization and I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for my family and my Father.”
