WHY SERENITY?

Serenity Hospice was created in 2003 from the dreams of a team of home-grown New Orleans hospice nurses. Our mission is simple: to provide exceptional day-to-day quality of life for patients with life-limiting illness.

Serenity Hospice is owned and operated by veteran oncology field nurses. With combined hospice nursing experience of more than 200 years, our Serenity team has earned great insight into the daily management of disease processes and the turmoil this may cause for a family. Our family works well together and with yours to create a peaceful symptom free environment for your loved one.

Having a local owner on site daily ensures our care team is held to a higher performance standard as we create an individualized, compassionate plan of care. Our field nurses creatively and more effectively manage our patients’ symptoms in partnership with our palliative care certified medical director and experienced compound pharmacists. Licensed and certified RN’s along with LPN’s, CNA’s and visiting physician round out our care team with compassion and experience as our guide, our patients are able to more fully enjoy every day they are given. All team members have passed a rigorous background check.

A dismal picture of hospice is typically perceived when contemplating caring for a terminally ill patient in the home. We are committed to continuous community education regarding the benefits and true definition of hospice as it should be. Our goal is to enhance the positive and rewarding aspects of end-of-life home care that allow the patient and family to fully embrace this situation and feel empowered in their decisions.
