Four Seasons Compassion for Life, a hospice, palliative care and research organization in Western North Carolina, is a leader in state, national and international efforts to set benchmarks for palliative care. As a leading hospice and palliative care provider, Four Seasons has been ranked in the top percentile in the country for client satisfaction. The organization has a 19 bed residential hospice facility, but the primary provision of both palliative and hospice care is in homes, assisted living facilities, and skilled nursing facilities throughout Western North Carolina.
In September 2014, Four Seasons was awarded a grant extending through a 3 year timeframe by CMMI (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovations) to study and develop a community-based palliative care model. The goal of this model is to improve access, healthcare outcomes, and patient/family satisfaction while containing costs. The provision of this website is one of several ways we have utilized grant funding to achieve these goals.
