Barton Hospice provides comfort and relieves symptoms of patients with a terminal illness who have a prognosis of six months or less. Our hospice team works together to help you and your family understand your illness and make informed decisions regarding end of life issues. Respecting your decisions and needs is important to us and we embrace individual faiths and cultural beliefs.

Hospice care is provided in the privacy of your home, a nursing facility or group home and focuses on the comfort of the patient rather than curative treatments. The hospice team works with each person and their family to determine the most beneficial treatment and how to provide care. This includes the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual care of patients and their loved ones.

End-of-life discussions and decisions are never easy. When that time comes, we are here to serve as a resource for you.

Available through a Physician’s referral, covered under Medicare, Medi-Cal, private pay, and private insurance in the South Lake Tahoe Area, Stateline, Glenbrook and Markleeville, Barton Hospice is state-licensed, federally-certified, and Joint Commission accredited.
