The Big Idea 2024:
Know Us Before You Need Us

At its core, hospice care focuses on enhancing the quality of life, not just prolonging it. The nurses who founded Hospice of Santa Cruz County 45 years ago recognized the need within our healthcare system for holistic care that includes medical, emotional and spiritual care for both the patient and their family.

Every day, HSCC accompanies community members as they navigate serious illness and supports them through their grief. Care is provided to all people of all ages. As the only nonprofit hospice provider in Santa Cruz County, we put people over profits so they can access high-quality care that reflects their goals, values, and preferences.

For many, navigating serious illness is challenging due to language and cultural barriers, or simply fear about this next phase of care. Please support our work to overcome these barriers through education and outreach programs in English and Spanish so we can support families through the most challenging decisions and ensure that no one walks this journey alone.

Hospice is amazing and powerful. It's all about the power of connection. People helping and nurturing other people.
