Quality Care for All of Acadiana

Hospice care is available to all patients and families within our 9-parish service area as soon as their physician makes a diagnosis of a terminal illness or condition, and certifies that there is most likely a prognosis of six months or less to live.

As the ONLY nonprofit hospice care provider in Acadiana, our mission is to provide comprehensive, compassionate end-of-life care, regardless of your ability to pay. With Hospice of Acadiana, Inc., you will receive all the care you need—for as long as you need it.

The most important thing to remember is that the patient has the right to revoke hospice at any time, and for any reason, including to seek aggressive treatment or simply because they choose to.

Are you ready to get help?

Just give us a call, email us, or stop by.

As Acadiana’s only nonprofit hospice provider, we rely on the support and generosity of our community.


Hospice of Acadiana Foundation provides for the unreimbursed care and support services of our terminal patients and their families – in whatever capacity that may be. When you donate to Hospice of Acadiana, you can rest assured that your donation will be used to offer quality end-of-life care and support. No matter how long or how short their time is, Hospice of Acadiana's mission is always to allow all patients to truly live their final months, weeks, or days.

With your donation, we can ensure that this is a reality for every single patient that comes into our care.
