Mercy Hospice Concept of Care

At Mercy Hospice - S. Range Line in Joplin, MO we believe that people with advanced illness deserve to live, fully preserving their dignity, among family and friends in familiar surroundings. 

We bring warm, compassionate care to patients with any terminal illness, wherever they live, including:

  • Homes and apartments
  • Nursing homes
  • Assisted living facilities
  • Independent care facilities

Our mission is to support patients and their families with care that addresses their physical, emotional and spiritual needs, allowing people to enjoy life to the fullest.

Hospice has a complete staff of nurses, hospice aides, social workers, volunteers and chaplains. Together, they develop detailed care plans for each patient and patient’s family. 

When is Hospice Care Appropriate?

Terminal illness does not mean “giving up.” Hospice brings a new kind of hope – the hope for dignity and comfort. When a terminal illness has been diagnosed (life expectancy less than six months), and cure-oriented treatment is no longer being pursued, hospice is an option. Hospice is appropriate when quality of life is your priority.

Mercy Hospice is able to deliver care in the areas we serve. Through our family of dedicated health care professionals, paraprofessionals, support staff and volunteers, we provide expert and compassionate home care services.
