Hospice Care Services in NJ

Hospice care services in NJ can help you or someone you care about live more comfortably during serious illness and at the end of life.  Hospice care is quality, compassionate care that means you are getting help, not giving up.

In fact, many caregivers say they wish they called sooner for hospice care services because of its many benefits. One family member remarked, “In the past when we heard the word ‘hospice,’ it translated into negative thoughts for us. However, moving forward we are now grateful to have Samaritan at our side and to alleviate our fears about this type of care.”
