Rice Hospice care brings hope to help people live life as fully as possible, offers dignity when there is not a cure, and surrounds famlies with love at one of life’s most challenging times.
Through charitable support, Rice Hospice offers “around the clock” on-call nursing services, as well as trained volunteers who are able to provide a variety of supportive services to terminally-ill patients and respite for their caregivers.
Rice Hospice care is provided regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. Donations to Rice Health Foundation make this possible.
