Our mission is to positively transform the way people view and experience serious illness, dying, and grief. Hospice is a method of care that centers on comfort rather than cure. It's a philosophy that celebrates quality-rather than quantity-of life for patients with serious illnesses. 

More About Us

At Hospice of the Piedmont, we make it possible for our patients – who are people from all backgrounds, faced with life-limiting illnesses – to live the rest of their lives with dignity, love and peace. We enable families to have quality time together and we provide counseling and grief support with specialized programs for children who have lost a loved one.  

We remain committed to caring for patients with life-limiting illnesses, to providing support to those who are grieving, and to help support family caregivers across our twelve-county service area. We are only able to continue this important work thanks to the generosity of people like you. 

Here are just a few examples of the care you have made possible just this year:

  • Our new palliative care program, Piedmont Care, has helped patients to manage their illnesses, providing holistic medical care at home.
  • We began a new public education series, “Community Conversations”, a free quarterly event focused on a variety of topics related to hospice and palliative care.
  • We are reaching out to provide access to marginalized communities in our area. We have partnered with other local organizations to provide care to people of color and the LGBTQ community, and training on grief support - provided at no cost.
  • We have continued to offer access to bereavement and grief counseling for adults as well as art therapy and day camps for children, and look forward to returning to in-person grief counseling this summer.
  • This summer, we will welcome a Death Doula to our staff, focused on helping families in our area cope with death by recognizing it as a natural and important part of life.
