Gaston Hospice & Gaston Palliative Services
Compassion and dignity are the foundation of Gaston Hospice and Gaston
Palliative Services. We believe that every life matters, and we are devoted
to making each life we encounter more peaceful, comfortable and prepared
for the future. This circle of support extends beyond the patient to friends
and family who may need more comfort, education and help during this time.
Whether we are helping a patient face serious illness or providing end-of-life
care, we work to minimize pain and stress of symptoms, while improving
quality of life.
Gaston Hospice and Gaston Palliative Services are affiliates of CaroMont
Health, and not-for-profit organizations, located in Gastonia, NC.
Gaston Hospice is the oldest, largest and most comprehensive hospice provider in Gaston
County. Since 1981, our experienced staff and volunteers have dedicated
themselves to providing the most compassionate, exceptional and highly
reliable hospice care for your loved one. In addition to addressing physical
pain and symptoms, Gaston Hospice responds to the social, emotional and
spiritual needs of terminally ill persons, their caregivers and loved
ones as they define those needs. Gaston Hospice emphasizes quality of
life and considers the entire family in its program of care.
Gaston Palliative Services can begin providing treatment at the time of diagnosis. We focus on improving
the quality of life for people living with a serious illness or medical
condition, regardless of their age or prognosis. Our main goal is to relieve
symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, nausea, and more,
while helping patients carry on with the activities of their daily life.
Our patients are cared for where they live, whether it’s their home,
a family member's home, an assisted living facility, a skilled nursing
facility or any other residence.
