Questions? We're here for you.
Agrace is a nonprofit, community-based health care agency. We provide hospice and palliative care services in private homes, and in skilled nursing, assisted living and other community residential facilities across southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Our offices are located in Madison, Janesville and Baraboo, Wisconsin; and in Rockford, Illinois.
Here is our current service area:
Agrace was founded in 1978 by volunteers who believed in the revolutionary idea that comfort, dignity, and even hope and joy, are possible for those facing a life-limiting illness. Then known as “HospiceCare Inc.,” we grew steadily in south central Wisconsin for decades. In 2011, we added “Agrace” to our name to make it more distinctive.
For nearly 40 years, Agrace has been an innovator and leader in both caring for patients and their families, and in educating others about death, dying and grief. We are the largest hospice provider in Wisconsin and expanded our services into northern Illinois in 2016. Below are our mission and vision statements:
Partnering with patients and families to improve quality of life throughout serious illness
To lead the evolution of hospice and palliative care through innovation, education and access—one patient, one family, one community at a time
We’re here to lift the burden so our patients can live comfortably, with dignity & joy, because that’s what matters most.
We accept patients and families for who they are & share their journey through serious illness. Along the way, we make it OK to talk about illness & dying, and try to anticipate the questions patients hadn’t yet thought to ask.
Everyone deserves to have access to Agrace’s personalized, supportive care, regardless of who they are or whether they can pay.
When days are tough and decisions are hard, we can lean on our team for strength & work with our health care partners to find solutions.
We feel honored when patients and families welcome Agrace into their lives and their homes.
Patients count on us to help them through a once-in-a-lifetime journey. We serve them best by measuring, analyzing and collaborating to deliver consistently high-quality care.
Our communities help build & fund Agrace—our inpatient units and programs. As a nonprofit, it’s our responsibility to deliver quality care, in a sustainable way, and to reinvest any profits to serve our communities even better.
We foster a culture of learning, knowing the hospice and palliative clinicians of tomorrow learn best from the hands-on training Agrace provides today.
