How We Make a Difference

How We Make a Difference

Notre Dame Hospice is the only Catholic, non-profit hospice in the area.

“This is the journey of life, and we as a church should be there to assist people through that journey of life. This is such a good fit for us. It’s rare that you see a hospice provider handling all levels of care.” Wayne Plaisance, chief executive officer.

Notre Dame Hospice is the only Catholic, non-profit hospice in the area. It is part of our ministry to do the beautiful work God has given us the opportunity to perform. It is this deep-seeded belief that compels us to give the very best care to you and the special people who love you. Whether that care is through expert pain relief and symptom control, practical support for daily living, spritiual support,  or simply a hand to hold,  an ear to listen or a heart that understands.

Through this ministry, the archdiocese will be able to provide area Catholics the peace of mind that everything done for them at the end of life is in accordance with church teaching. We are there to provide compassion and care, we are here to be by your side. Although Notre Dame Hospice is a ministry of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, we serve people of all faiths and beliefs.
