We’re Now Lower Cape Fear LifeCare



New Name. New Look. More Services. Same Excellent Care and Support.

Lower Cape Fear Hospice is now Lower Cape Fear LifeCare!

With 2020 being our 40th anniversary,  the time was right to not only celebrate our past but to look toward our future. For many years, we’ve been expanding our programs and services offering palliative care, extensive grief care, piloting a dementia care program in New Hanover County, and expanding educational offerings to community members and local healthcare providers. Our name change signifies this growth and positions us to expand even more. As Lower Cape Fear LifeCare, we’re excited about touching the lives of even more people in our community with our expert care and compassionate support.


Naturally, when change occurs people want to know why or how it may affect them. We’ve assembled some Frequently Asked Questions below to give you the answers you need and want.

LifeCare is access to health care that provides people with a spectrum of health services from palliative care through hospice care, at any point in their lives, wherever they call home. LifeCare also provides support and education to loved ones and care givers throughout the stages of illness and the grieving process.

If you or a loved one is living with a chronic or serious illness, we can help improve quality of life for the whole family. Call us today at 800-733-1476 to find out more about any of our services or programs.

“We have had the help of Lower Cape Fear LifeCare palliative care for our Mom for 2 years. They have been amazing. They have PA’s, nurses and volunteers checking in on her weekly as well as making sure she has a fall mat by her bed and a wheel chair. Today they brought her gifts, balloons, a card and a cake for her 90th birthday!”
