Gifts will assure that individualized compassionate care to terminally ill patients, their families and friends, will continue.

Dealing with the final days and death of a loved one is one of the most difficult situations we all face. Whether it is a spouse, parent, sibling, child or friend--the situation can be frightening as well as painful. N. C. Little Memorial Hospice (Little Hospice) is a not-for-profit, independent hospice organization providing expert pain management, symptom control, and compassionate care for people living with a terminal illness. We serve patients throughout the State of Minnesota and beyond. Little Hospice is the state's longest serving 8-bed residential hospice and is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health. We collaborate with area hospitals and home-based hospice programs to care for people who require 24-hour skilled nursing care at the end of life. 

Dedicated to providing loving care to patients, their families, and friends since opening our doors in 1996, Little Hospice has remained a home--not a facility--but truly a home for over 25 years.

What families and friends have said:

*  "Thanks so much for the tender and loving care you provided to our mother during her short stay there. It was wonderful to have such a warm environment to say our good-byes and send our mother off with love. Your kindness provided great comfort." 

*  "Thank you so very much for the wonderful and kind care everyone gave to my sister. She thrived there-because of all of you. Our family got wonderful time with her. As one nurse (soon to retire) to another: you make me proud."

*  "Six years ago my sister passed away at the N. C. Little Hospice. I knew at the time that the care she received was exemplary. I continue to be grateful that the quality of her care, the heartfelt way she was treated, made her last days as peaceful and comfortable as possible. Still filled with gratitude!"

*  "Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our dad. His last days were peaceful and the time we spent with him will be forever in our memories." 

*  "The last few months of my wife's illness were so difficult for me and our children. Thank you for providing a safe, comfortable place those last weeks. "

*  "Words simply cannot express our gratitude to each and every one of you for your tender care. It gives us such peace of mind knowing how loved and cared for she felt in her last few weeks of life. Every person who helped to care for her or who just stopped in to visit was so compassionate and kind to all of us in her room and even to the family members outside her window." (2020 in the early months of Covid)

*   "My friend's cat, Maggie, was so important to her. Thank you for allowing those many kitty visits during her final days. And, as I promised my dear friend, Maggie is now living with me. A sweet memory of our long-time friendship."  

*  And from one of our hospice volunteers, "I was crying as I left Little Hospice today. As I was volunteering in the kitchen, I listened as a family sang to their grandmother in a loving display of affection. Thank you for being here and for allowing me to part of this caring team."

While much has changed in the world, our renowned loving, compassionate, and skilled care for our patients, families, and friends remains our strong foundation.
