StarShine’s Hospice Program is for children and young adults whose life expectancy is six months or less. The Hospice Program is a support for families to make the child comfortable and help make the final moments of life memorable. 

The program provides care and support to children to make the most of your their remaining time. Most StarShine visits are in home care, allowing the family to surround their child with love and comfort in their own homes.
