Hospice - It's About Living
If you had six months to live, you’d want to spend that time with the people you love, doing the activities you enjoy, in the places where you’re most comfortable.
That’s exactly what we want for you.
At Hospice of Chenango County, we believe that you matter until the last moment of your life. That’s why we provide compassionate end-of-life care for you and your family to help make choices that are right for you. We’ll do all we can to help you fulfill the dreams you’ve always had, whether it’s to attend your son’s wedding or to hold your first grandchild.
Whether you have a terminal illness and need palliative care, seek homecare, or counseling to deal with death and dying, Hospice of Chenango County can provide it.
As your health changes, your hopes may change:
- You hope that you will still be able to get out and about and enjoy your friends.
- You hope that you’ll remain comfortable.
- You hope that your questions will be answered honestly.
- You hope that the medical bills won’t cripple you financially.
- You hope that your loved ones will get excellent grief support during their bereavement.
We provide that hope to so many families.

Hard Working Volunteers at Flower Sale
Hospice has wrapped up its largest fundraiser of the year, the spring plant sale. It takes scores of staff and volunteers to complete the monumental task of sorting and transporting flowers to more than fifty sites throughout Chenango County. What once was a small geranium sale has grown to include in-house multi plant sales within all schools and many businesses from Afton and Sherburne and all points in between. This year we welcomed the hard work and volunteer hours provided by Leading EDGE a DMCO/BOCES adult education group who spent hours working with our long time Hospice volunteers. We could not have done it without each and every one of you. We salute you for caring about those receiving Hospice care.
