About Acadian Hospice and Palliative Care

You have a choice in your hospice provider. Our hospice program is about living, loving and making every day count.

Acadian Hospice and Palliative Care understands. When you or someone you love is living with a terminal illness, quality of life matters more than ever. We believe that every chapter of life, even in its final stages, can be lived well. When time matters most, you can count on our team of compassionate hospice professionals to help you or your loved one live comfortably, with dignity, when a cure is no longer possible.

Meeting the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of each patient and family is our top priority. Our interdisciplinary hospice team of nurses, social workers, chaplains, counselors and trained volunteers offer the support patients and families need in the comfort and privacy of home. Counseling and bereavement support services are available to families before and after a patient’s death.

We welcome volunteers from all walks of life. Whether you contribute your time and talents directly with patients or prefer to work behind the scenes, we invite you to become a member of a dedicated group of compassionate caregivers who serve as vital members of our hospice team. The volunteer’s most important role is that of a loving and supportive presence.

Would you like to add your business or organization to

Whether you represent a business or a community organization such as a church, school, museum, city government, etc., we invite you to create an account and get a free listing in our online business directory. There is no charge to create an account and it only takes a few moments of your time.

If you'd like additional exposure for your business or organization, we offer all kinds of options to fit your needs and budget. Do you want to bring more people in to your establishment? Why not consider a coupon or a promotional event? If you just need to keep yourself in the public eye you might want to think about placing an eye-catching full-color ad. You can choose your medium: the website, the mobile app, the weekly newsletter, our popular wall calendar, or any combination of the four.

Did you know that independent studies by the Verafast Corporation repeatedly show that at least 70% of all homeowners who receive our calendar keep and use it all year long? That's a phenomenal retention rate and makes sure that your business or organization is truly being put On Display Every Day.

With your account you'll also have the opportunity to post events that will appear on our website, in our weekly newsletter, and on our mobile app. Please remember that Town Planner is a franchise and all events are subject to approval by the local publisher in your area. As a general rule, our publishers are happy to accept non-profit events, but some publishers may have individual policies concerning for-profit events or events that compete with paying Town Planner sponsors. If you're uncertain about your event, please feel free to contact your local publisher to inquire about his or her policies prior to posting.

Remember too that we are a family friendly organization and reserve the right to reject any events that we deem inappropriate for our calendar or online media tools.

We want to bring the Town Planner to even more towns across America. If you or someone you know want to earn a good living while promoting local businesses and building hometown pride, please consider becoming a Town Planner publisher today!
