Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care, a faith-based home health care agency, celebrated 33 years of caring service in 2020. The agency was licensed on April 29, 1987. Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care believes in the dignity of the human person and the sacredness of human life. The dedicated staff of nurses and social workers, physical, speech and occupational therapists, and home health aides specializes in the needs of persons who are elderly, handicapped, chronically ill or terminally ill who would benefit from care in their homes.

Our social workers provide the personal, spiritual, and emotional support needed for individuals and their families in complement to the physical support our nurses and therapists provide. Together, our staff works as a team to meet the needs of those who are ill, recuperating, homebound or dying.
