About Us

About Us

At Notre Dame Hospice we help people facing advanced illness live more fully.  Our focus is on the individual, making sure you live with advancing illness in your own way. We find out what’s important to you and use this as our guide to help you along your journey – making it a time of joy, of grace, of love, and a time of living.

To us, hospice is about providing the care beyond the cure so individuals can live more fully in comfort, peace and in control.

Notre Dame Hospice is a ministry of the Archdiocese of New Orleans and is the only Catholic nonprofit hospice in the Greater New Orleans Area.

Our mission is to provide quality, compassionate health care and support services in a Christian environment. One which respects the uniqueness of each person, promotes and enhances the quality of life, and preserves dignity in life, illness and death.

To us it is about faith, hope and love.  It is when it becomes less about the illness and more about the life that remains.

 

Our Mission

Notre Dame Hospice is a ministry of the Archdiocese of New Orleans and is the only Catholic nonprofit hospice in the Greater New Orleans Area.

We rely upon the intercession of our Blessed Mother to assist us in imitating the healing ministry of Jesus Christ as we care for terminally ill patients and their families.

We call forth the compassion and kindness of our staff, who serve in this healthcare ministry, to respond to the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of our patients and their families.

We believe in the sacredness of life from conception to natural death, and we devote ourselves to supporting patients and families through the dying process at the end of life’s journey on this earth and new life in eternity.
