Hospice & Palliative Care Services
Providing Professional, Compassionate Care to All
There are many misconceptions surrounding the true benefit of hospice care, palliative care, and comfort care services in our communities today. At Seasons Hospice of Springfield, we seek to redefine hospice care and end the stigma associated with it to be able to provide patients, families, and caregivers the support they need in extremely difficult times. We have a deep desire to educate our patients, their families, and our community about the benefits of seeking end-of-life care at the right time.
Our hope in providing professional, compassionate services and education is that any unnecessary suffering will be minimized when our community is informed and are able to see beyond the stigma of hospice care. Once a loved one meets the criteria for starting hospice services, it’s time to call a provider.
Common Benefits of Hospice Care
Peace of mind for patients and their loved ones
Seasons Hospice provides comprehensive caregiver support and patient care services to each person in the hospice or palliative care program, ensuring that they are comfortable and pain-free. Families, loved ones, and caregivers also have the chance to be given respite from the situational stress that arises from caring for a loved one in poor health and needing extra support.
Additionally, knowing that there will be a dedicated physician and palliative care team assigned to your loved one (that will not change from day to day) is often reassuring for everyone involved.
Hospice care also gives patients and their loved ones a safe and supportive space to both grieve and celebrate life together. Whether the individual is more comfortable with home hospice care or inpatient palliative hospice care, we will arrange a comforting environment for them so they can focus on relaxing.
Customized care and counseling
At Seasons – Springfield, our hospice services aren’t just focused on medical care alone. Our mission is also centered around holistic health and focusing on emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing and support services. We seek to cultivate an environment that is peaceful, not clinical. Our services can be customized to fit the individual needs of each patient that we serve, and we always work toward improving the quality of life for each person – and their loved ones – in the hospice program.
Uplifting love and support
Hospice does not have to be a time of sorrow for patients and their loved ones. At Seasons, we do everything we can to ensure this time is filled with joy and the opportunity to create lasting memories. Thanks to the generosity of community donors, Seasons Hospice – Springfield can provide our hospice patients with moments they can treasure with their families. From dinner at a fancy restaurant to going to a baseball game, we attempt to honor every patient request.
Ensuring Comfort Through Compassionate Care
Seasons Hospice provides comprehensive hospice and palliative care programs, including pain management services and medical, psychological, and spiritual support.
Grief Counseling & Support Groups
Seasons Hospice will be there for you as you mourn the loss of a loved one. We offer grief counseling and support groups to help facilitate and encourage healthy adjustments to managing everyday life after the transition following end-of-life care.
Care and Respite for Families and Caregivers
We understand that the hospice care process is not only difficult for our patients; it is also difficult for their families and caregivers too. A huge weight off any caregiver’s shoulders begins with finding the best hospice for your loved one. In addition to the free counseling that we offer, our professional homemaker services can provide caregiver help and respite to caretakers who are often juggling many stressful duties.

Your Donations Support Our Services and the Families That Need Them
Seasons Hospice – Springfield is an independent community health care provider and not a large for-profit organization.

To simplify the already-difficult hospice process for patients and families, we rely on the generosity of our donors. Please consider Seasons for your next charitable contribution.
We sincerely thank you for your support.
