Hospice by the Bay's non-profit mission is to provide you and loved ones with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual support during a difficult time.
My father passed last year. Having Hospice by the Bay there to help us was truly a blessing and made a very difficult situation more manageable. The hospice people were compassionate and helpful. We could not have hoped for more and we are eternally grateful for their assistance in our hours of greatest need. ~ Andy
