SilverStone Hospice, formerly known as Comfort Care Hospice.
Hospice care is a type of treatment that focuses on aggressive symptom management for patients who are battling a terminal illness. We offer a team that supports the efforts of families and caregivers to help patients receive a higher quality of life. Hospice doesn’t mean giving up, and it doesn’t mean giving up hope.
SilverStone Hospice provides patient and family-centered care that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing and treating symptoms to bring comfort. Our Board- Certified Medical Directors facilitate a caring environment and lead our team of nurses, aides, spiritual counselors, and social workers to provide comprehensive treatments tailored to meet patients’ needs and desires.
SilverStone Hospice ensures you are treated with respect and dignity in the environment you choose to call home. Our team is accessible 24/7.
Hospice is covered 100% by Medicare, Medicaid or most private insurances. There are no out-of-pocket expenses to receive your hospice benefit.
When you contact us, a member of our clinical team we’ll take you throughyour options and ensure that you or your loved ones get the right level of care.

We are experts in implementing care, treatment and support beyond the boundaries of medicine to the communities we serve. In addition to your medical needs, we can help with emotional issues, financial concerns, practical problems and lots more. We work closely together to make sure that your care is coordinated and, most importantly, built around you and your family.
Our team is as committed to medical and safety guidelines as it is prepared to advocate on behalf of our patients and their families during challenging times. We are fiercely compassionate as we vigilantly support our patients in their final hours, so that no one dies alone.
SilverStone Hospice provides choice centered hospice care during a time when curative measures no longer add quality of life. Personalized medical care is choosing the highest level of care for you and your loved one.
We look forward to sharing our unique processes grounded in our team’s 60+ years of care experience with you. The care we offer enhances quality of life as we work together to create optimal outcomes for patients and their families.
Volunteering, the foundation of how our company originated is the exact same as what started hospice in the United States 50 years ago; our CEO was a vigil volunteer for hospice patients, volunteering became his calling and he bought the company.
We create tried and true, individualized plans of care that reinforce every patient support system, and we go out of our way to advocate on our patients’ behalf.
We operate with transparency, honor, integrity, and doing the right thing because it is the right thing to do.
We hire a very specific type of person to join SilverStone: Clinically experienced and qualified, consistently provides care filled with compassion, strives to say “yes” to our patients’ needs, to meet them where they are in their journeys, and sees hospice more than just a career, but as a calling.
We provide palliative care versus curative care as we aggressively treat symptoms. In hospice we don’t get do-overs; we have to get things right every single time, for every single family; and this is how we do things at SilverStone.
Our symptom management benefit brings comfort, pain relief, safety, compassion and dignity for you or your loved one. We embrace our opportunity to offer alternative healing therapies, modalities and practices.

We master the art of being present beside our patients and are always accessible to the family in the most challenging of circumstances. We are fiercely compassionate and vigilantly support each patient, so that no one dies alone.
We empower families. By mirroring the family system, we naturally become an authentic extension of care, love and support. We enable families to confidently provide the best care experience for their loved ones.
