Who We Are
Our Mission Statement:
By definition, Grace cannot be purchased. It must, simply, be received.
It is the heart of Grace Hospice of Missoula County, to provide end of life care at no cost. Grace Hospice is funded, solely, by donations of kindness and goodwill.
Practicing hospice, collectively, for greater than 40 years, a small group of registered nurses began to question “the way it’s always been done.”
In the beginning, Grace was an idea - a heart motive - to provide quality end-of-life care to terminally ill patients, in our community, at no cost and without restriction of further pursuit of cure. Our hope of a hospice experience without, what is often perceived as, penalty or restriction, led us on a journey to find answers and alternatives.
On our journey, we found the answers and we found the way.
In September of 2021, Grace Hospice of Missoula County became reality.
Now, we’d like to share Grace with you.
It is with heart-felt gratitude and humbling community support, that we offer you Grace.

How We Help
When Grace is received, we will come to you, as you are and where you are. Grace’s presence will honor you, honor your wishes, and preserve the integrity of your right to choose how you navigate your sacred journey.
Grace’s care will include compassionate skilled nursing assessments, specialized pain and symptom management, quality education regarding “what this may look like”, open communication and most importantly, honesty, even when truth is difficult to speak and difficult to hear. We are available 24 hours per day.
How It Works:
Your physician will remain your physician. If you choose to pursue treatment - whether for cure or comfort - you retain your right to do so, without penalty or withdrawal from Grace’s services.
If you receive Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance benefits, you will continue to utilize those benefits, including prescription benefits, as you have thus far.
