LungLink: Respiratory Care from Crossroads Hospice

Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care's LungLink is a unique respiratory and lung cancer care program offered to patients wishing to withdraw from life-sustaining ventilator support. Collaboration with a physician and a respiratory therapist ensures comfort for the patient, and our team of hospice professionals provide support for the family before, during, and after the withdrawal.


Lung cancer and other respiratory care at Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care.

undefinedLung cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer, and Crossroads Hospice’s program provides patients and their families the best way to approach this life-limiting respiratory illness. 

Having lung cancer and opting for hospice care can be a difficult decision for a patient and/or family caregiver. The experienced staff of Crossroads Hospice will guide you and do everything in their power to ensure as much comfort as possible.

In addition to cancer, the LungLink program can help patients in need of other pulmonary hospice care services. Our respiratory hospice program has established the following process to offer comfort and care to our patients.
