Hospice Fact Sheet

Clay County Health Department Hospice is a non profit organization which serves people who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and given 6 months or less to live.

Hospice became licensed on February 11th, 2003 and accepted their first patient on February 13.

Hospice neither hastens nor postpones the patient’s life but rather it allows the death to occur naturally.  Hospice affirms life and believes that death is a personal experience to be dealt with on a one-to-one basis. 

We feel we are quite fortunate to assist the patients and families in Clay County and the surrounding communities.  We have received several memorials and donations since becoming licensed.

Hospice offers nursing, health aide, social service, pastoral and volunteer services to assist the patient and family.  We pay for any medication that is related to the terminal illness to help alleviate the burden at this crucial time.
