Hospice Care

Providing Specialized Care & Comfort for Those Who Cannot Be Cured

Regardless of whether it takes days, weeks or months, the end of life can be a meaningful time for patients and their loved ones. Wheaton Franciscan’s Milwaukee-area Hospice offers a strong, comfortable and caring end-of-life environment in which a patient’s pain and symptoms can be managed and fears can be diminished.

Hospice Care

We bring this philosophy of care into homes, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and community-based residential facilities. As a faith-based organization, our goal is for each patient and family to achieve quality of life through emotional and spiritual support as well as physical comfort. 

We are leaders in this increasingly significant care option, and hold an annual conference for professionals focused solely on the topic.

Our Hospice Care

Our style of care is tailored specifically to meet the needs of our patients and their respective families. That care is delivered by a team that includes the family caregiver, physician, nurses, social workers, spiritual care staff, home health aides, volunteers and other healthcare professionals as they’re needed.

Patient Experience

"[Hospice] made caring for my mother at home so much easier and more comfortable by providing meds, equipment, and nurses. Can't imagine how much more difficult it would have been without this service."

We understand that the end of one’s life, and the care that comes with it, are extreme transitions for any family, and that grief is part of the transition process. That’s why our hospice team is available to provide bereavement counseling to family members for a full year after the passing of a loved one. 

Wheaton Franciscan Hospice care serves patients throughout the Southeast Wisconsin region in Milwaukee, Kenosha, Ozaukee, Racine, eastern Walworth, Washington and Waukesha counties.

Patient Experience

"After the doctors released me to your care, I must admit that I felt desperate to the point of losing every single hope. But today, after being in your care for more than two months, I want to say, and it won't be an exaggeration, that I am happier than ever despite the gravity of my sickness."
