Lumina Hospice & Palliative Care, a community-grown nonprofit, provides compassionate care and support for individuals, families and caregivers facing serious illness or end of life.

Founded as Benton Hospice Service in 1980, Lumina has a long tradition of serving end-of-life needs in the Mid-Willamette Valley in Oregon. From our hospice and palliative care services to our extensive grief and caregiver support programs, we are here for you.

Hospice Care

Hospice is a comprehensive approach to end-of-life care that provides emotional, spiritual, physical, and psychological support to patients and families.

Palliative Care

Palliative Care is specialized medical care that focuses on improving quality of life and comfort when facing a serious illness or complex medical decisions.

Caregiver Support

Family and friends are often thrust into the role of caregiver without training. Lumina can help during these challenging times.

Grief Support

Grief support groups or one-on-one sessions are provided to anyone in the community, regardless of connection to hospice.

Transitions

Non-medical support, access to community resources, and practical assistance to those living with a serious, life-limiting illness who are either not ready for, or not eligible for, hospice care.
