Bella Care Stepping Stones

What is the Bella Care STEPPING STONES Program?

Bella Care's Stepping Stones Program exists to give strength and comfort to families and their loved ones as they embark on their final journey.

The Stepping Stones Program provides music, listening, touch, comfort, support and, above all, presence.
  • Research indicates that hearing is often the last of the senses retained.
  • Touch can relay as much, if not more, than talking.
  • Presence involves members of the Hospice team, family and others as desired.

“The most important gift you can offer during a time of loss, is your presence.”

~Bella Care Hospice Team Philosophy
