At Delaware Hospice, we offer a complete spectrum of care, from expert support in the comfort of your home to around-the-clock care at the Delaware Hospice Center, the only free standing hospice center in Delaware.

Although we strive to help patients remain in their homes whenever possible, there are times when symptoms can be better managed at our hospice center. If your loved one needs a higher level of care than they can get where they’re living, the Delaware Hospice Center is here for you.

The Center is located at 100 Patriots Way, Milford, DE 19963.

A Short-term Solution

When symptoms improve, your loved one can go back to receiving care in the comfort of wherever they call home. With Delaware Hospice, you never have to leave our continuum of care. We’ll stay in tune with your loved one’s needs, so you have less to worry about.
