Granting Patients' Final Wishes

Have you thought about what would bring you comfort and happiness in your final weeks or months? Not necessarily something you need, but something that makes the time you have left really count. What would it be? A ride in a convertible? A weekend trip to your favorite spot? A meal at your favorite restaurant? Seeing a loved one who lives far away?

Or maybe you have basic needs that aren’t being met. At Hospice of Acadiana, we believe that hospice care goes far beyond the medical needs of our patients. We recognize that providing comfort care can be different for each individual. For example, we have provided groceries to patients in need and temporary housing for the homeless at end of life. We have renovated the living room of a patient who wanted to die at home but couldn’t because her home was deemed unsafe. We've even allowed a young lady with down syndrome to experience one last Christmas—complete with snow, Santa Clause, and presents. Mission Moments speaks to the essence of who Hospice of Acadiana, Inc. is as an organization.

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.
