About US


Hospice of Wake County, with its home office located in Raleigh, N.C., is the oldest, largest and most experienced hospice organization serving Wake, Durham, Johnston, Franklin, and Harnett counties.

Since 1979, we have provided compassionate end of life care and have earned a reputation for outstanding professional expertise in helping families experience quality of life . . . throughout life.

From helping families deal with a life-limiting diagnosis, counseling families throughout their grief journey, and providing community education programs - Hospice of Wake County is your Partner in Caring on one of life’s most challenging journeys.

Today, our professional staff and trained volunteers provide expert medical care and supportive services to more than 1,500 families each year. To help meet the complex needs of families, these services include: counseling support for families, short-term respite care, spiritual care and counseling, volunteer support, bereavement care, transitional home health care, palliative care, and end-of-life education.

Our Goal is to Ensure That Our Families...

Our Philosophy

Every individual deserves the quality of life that he or she wants near life's end.

Although we receive reimbursement from Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance, no family is ever denied care due to lack of a payor source.

Hospice of Wake County continues to serve patients at end of life, no matter where they call “home.”  It is our policy to provide compassionate care and to follow the HIPAA Privacy Rule, which protects the privacy of individually identifiable health information of our patients.  As such, we will not discuss individual patient information, nor will we confirm or deny that any particular person is a patient under our care.
