Compassionate Care, when needed most

Hospice of Piedmont LogoLegacy Hospice of the Piedmont  is committed to providing compassionate care to patients, families, and caregivers facing life-limiting illnesses. Hospice provides services that meet patients ’unique physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Each patient experiences the dying process differently. It is the goal of the hospice team to develop a plan of care specific to each patient and his or her family and caregivers.
