...the body, mind and spirit in rhythm
Alternative Hospice provides holistic end-of-life healthcare by integrating complementary care with conventional medicine. Our program also offers support and guidance to the grieving and empowers patients, families and our community with information and education.
We understand that a hospice journey can be stressful for the patient, family and caregivers. It is our desire to help everyone accept that death and dying come to us all, and that we need not be afraid of this unknown experience. Just as being born is holy and sacred, dying and death are also holy and sacred.
As experienced professionals, our team is seasoned in conventional end-of-life healthcare and many are experienced, licensed and or certified in complementary care techniques, such as... Massage/Bodywork, Essence Therapy, Energy Work, Vibration Therapy, Guided Visualization/ Imagery, Prayer/Meditation... Alternative Hospice provides a personalized blend of specialized services for the patient, family and caregivers.
We firmly believe and live our mission, 'Teaching the Art of Living and Dying Well'.
Alternative Hospice is privileged to journey with our patients and families at life's end and we stand ready to serve as their emotional and spiritual guardian angels during this difficult time.
The Tree Of Life
The Tree Of Life is a universal symbol often found in many spiritual traditions and cultures. It symbolizes wisdom, strength, bounty, beauty, protection and redemption.
Many trees take on the appearance of death in the winter, only to sprout new growth in the spring. This aspect makes the tree a symbol of resurrection.
A tree also bears fruit and seeds which contain the essence of the tree. This continuous regeneration is a powerful symbol of immortality.
It is thought that the bird is a symbol of the soul, and when it takes flight, it is seeking the Divine.
