Casa de la Luz was established in 1998 to provide superior hospice care to Pima County residents. Founded by Agnes C. Poore and the late Lynette Jaramillo, Casa de la Luz has served its community through excellent end-of-life care, offering superior medical, emotional, and spiritual support to terminally ill individuals and their loved ones.
With hospice, community palliative care and extensive bereavement services, the breadth of programs at Casa de la Luz extends through every stage at end of life.
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, more 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.
