Father Louis Richard on the Origin and Mission of Hospice of Acadiana

Once a medieval term, hospice originally referred to a place where travelers could "stop and rest." Hospice of Acadiana can offer a place of rest and care sooner than you think, allowing patients to experience a fullness of life until they take their last natural breath.
