What if we could live with purpose and meaning each day…?

Even when life is changing…

Even when life is challenging…

Even when time may be limited…

Even until the very end of life…

Hospice care is our specialty.

Hospice of Douglas County provides the best possible care for those at end of life. We believe it starts with being open to the idea of discussing what is most important to you and your family when facing a serious illness. At Hospice of Douglas County care is provided by a team of health care professionals that have expertise in end of life care. Providing hospice care for over 30 years in our community has allowed us to develop a deep understanding of how to deliver exceptional compassionate care. We staff at levels that allow us to meet the individualized needs of each patient and their family.

We are a comprehensive hospice program located in Alexandria, MN, that serves Douglas County and surrounding communities.  Our team has provided compassionate care for terminally ill patients and support for their family members since 1983.
