Casa de la Luz Hospice was established in 1998 to provide superior hospice care to Pima County residents. Founded by Lynette Jaramillo and Agnes C. Poore, Casa de la Luz has served its community through excellent end-of-life care and extensive grief counseling. The hospice's home care program allows individuals to live and die in the comfort of their own homes. For individuals seeking a place to call home for the last months of life, Jaramillo and Poore opened Southern Arizona's first hospice home, Kanmar Place. Casa also owns and operates a hospice inpatient unit, one of only two in Tucson. As part of Casa's commitment to superior care and service, the organization offers presenters to community groups and healthcare organizations to educate professionals and interested individuals about end-of-life issues, hospice care, and grief issues. Casa de la Luz” is Spanish for “house of light.” That’s what you need when facing a terminal illness ? a house of light, to provide comfort, support, and experienced hospice care during your end-of-life journey. When the final months of life approach, most people agree that they want to be at home, treated with respect, free of pain, have personal wishes upheld, and to be remembered. Casa strives to accomplish all this for you…because every day counts.
