Why Choose LifeCare?


Your Care, Your Choice…Choose Lower Cape Fear LifeCare

Although your doctor, family members and friends can all provide suggestions about hospice providers, YOU are the ultimate decision maker in who provides your hospice care. When choosing a hospice provider, you want one that suits your needs, as well as those of your family.

While most hospices are Medicare certified and provide end-of-life care, how they provide that care is different. So are the services, programs, and levels of care and support they provide.

All hospices are not the same. Lower Cape Fear LifeCare is continually expanding its spectrum of support and life care to meet our community’s changing healthcare needs.

Lower Cape Fear LifeCare’s hospice care meets or exceeds the national average in all eight categories on a national caregivers’ survey. Following are the scores based on responses from family members.
