St. Luke Home Health & Hospice provides services to clients living in Pike, Amite, Franklin, Lincoln, Copiah, Lawrence, Walthall, Covington, Marion, Lamar, Jeff Davis, Simpson, and Smith Counties. Our mission is to provide quality care to our patients in a "sharing" commitment with the patient, family, physician and home health and hospice staff. We see these services as a means to provide a therapeutic environment for attaining this mission and provide a commitment to society and the community.

Our mission is to provide caring, dedicated staff to promote comfort and relief of any suffering to that our patients may achieve the quality of life they deserve. Our patients’ needs and goals are our top priorities at St. Luke. Our vision is to provide you with comprehensive, holistic palliative care concentrated and
created for each individual.

Home care allows you to continue to stay at home where you want to be, and to be independent even in the face of major health problems. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive patient centered care that is focused on each patient’s individual and unique health needs. We want to be your provider of choice for these services.

Our hospice care team can provide you with the treatment you need to relieve symptoms and manage pain in the comfort of your own bed. We are an entire team of registered nurses, social workers, home aides, chaplains and caregivers working to help you. You open your home, we open our hearts.

To receive hospice care, you, or a family member, as well as a friend or neighbor can call us. Your pastor or your doctor or nurse may call us anytime day or night. The moment this caring choice is made, you receive a personalized treatment plan created by an entire team just for you, and your family. Every person who receives our Hospice care says, “I wish I had called you sooner.”
