Our Approach

Hospice recognizes dying as part of the normal process of living, affirms life and therefore neither hastens nor does it postpone death. When you choose hospice care, the focus becomes the promotion of living as fully and as comfortably as possible. Allegiant Hospice pledges to provide the highest quality hospice service in the greater Phoenix area. We work to make patients feel comfortable, supported and we give them the ability to experience an enhanced quality of life surrounded by those they love. Our team makes regular visits at the bedside, wherever a patient calls home — a family residence, a long-term care facility, or a hospice unit — and we are on-duty 24 hours a day/seven days a week. Care is provided using an Interdisciplinary Care Team (IDT) approach, with staff who are highly experienced in comforting and alleviating the physical and emotional pain of someone facing end-of-life.
