Why We Care2024-06-14T15:44:45-04:00

Franciscan Ever There Care believes in the dignity of the human person and the sacredness of human life. This philosophy of care stems from the mission of Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care, a non-profit, faith-based home health care agency. Franciscan Ever There Care is centered in the intrinsic value of each human being and is guided by the values of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

Franciscan Ever There Care works in conjunction with the professional home care and hospice care staffs of its affiliate, Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care. This collaborative effort ensures coordination of services and continuity of care for you and your family.
