Six Positions Added for In-home Care
Agrace, a Wisconsin-based nonprofit health care organization, has expanded its service area to include Waukesha County. Residents can access Agrace’s expertise in end-of-life care, supportive (palliative) care and grief support.
For more than 40 years, Agrace has been an innovator and leader in the specialty of end-of-life care for people of all ages. In the past decade, it has developed and offered several related nonprofit health services while also expanding its geographical service area. The agency operates hospice inpatient units and residences in Madison and Janesville, Wis., and serves patients in their homes through its regional offices in Dodgeville, Baraboo—and now Oconomowoc.
