Hospice of Hope believes in serving the diverse needs of the families within the community.
Cultural & Spiritual Support Program
Culture is an essential part of one's being. Spirituality integrates with culture, and both play a significant role in a person's journey through life. Hospice of Hope provides cultural and spiritual support to our patients if needed or desired. We honor and respect each individual's beliefs.
At the end of life, there is often a greater need for spiritual or religious expression and with it a sense of purpose and feelings of warmth and security. We train our staff to assess each patient's cultural and spiritual needs. We understand the importance of honoring family traditions, rituals, religious laws, social customs, and dietary customs.
Jewish Care & Support Program
Hospice of Hope has developed a Jewish Care and Support Program. Through the program, individuals receive hospice care and services sensitive to Jewish customs, rituals, and laws. We are focused on helping individuals attain the highest quality of life when facing a terminal illness while observing Jewish laws, traditions, and values. We offer spiritual care to everyone, including those who are not affiliated with a congregation or do not have a rabbi. At the end of life, there is often a greater need for spiritual or religious expression and with it a sense of purpose and feelings of warmth and security.
What is the Jewish Care & Support Program?
Hospice of Hope’s Jewish Care and Support Program ensures that our care recognizes our patients’ and families’ religious and cultural beliefs. Each family’s care team includes the patient, family, physicians, nurses, social workers, rabbis, hospice aides, and volunteers. Our team member has special training in Jewish customs, rituals, and practices. They are also trained in health care decision-making issues that may arise due to concerns with following Jewish law.
Accredited by the National Institute for Jewish Hospice

Enrolled Veterans are eligible if they meet the clinical need for hospice. Enrollment information is available on the Veterans Affair Health Benefits website. There are no Co-pays for Hospice Care, whether provided by the VA or with Hospice of Hope. Additional Resources for Veterans/Hospice Care.
Hospice of Hope offers Grief Support to those who have experienced the death of a loved one. Grief is a reaction to a loss affecting all parts of our lives physically, emotionally, spiritually, socially, and psychologically. It is a very personal journey to which there are no roadmaps, guidelines, or specifics. Therefore, we believe that participation in a grief support group is one of the most effective ways to cope with the pain associated with losing someone you love.
If you are interested in participating in a group or wish to speak with someone on an individual basis, our bereavement team will assist you.

Legacy of Love
Legacy of Love is our non-profit organization that provides services to patients and their families, regardless of their ability to pay. Contributions to our non-profit organization in the form of memorials, honorariums, and gifts assist us in providing these essential services.
If you would like to make a gift, please contact a representative at (901) 560-3600.
Volunteers provide friendship, compassion, and companionship for patients and their families. Volunteers may read to the patient, make phone calls, write notes and even offer bereavement support. They are the “heart of hospice”.
Hospice of Hope is committed to providing compassionate care to our patients and their families. We believe that we should provide everyone the opportunity to die in a dignified and comfortable manner.
One of the ways we do this is through the help of our amazing volunteers who give some of themselves to make someone’s final days a bit easier by showing them compassion. So often, the smallest actions that show someone is cared about can be so meaningful to them.
