"Casa de la Luz" is Spanish for "house of light." That's what one needs when facing a terminal illness ― a house of light, to provide comfort, support, and experienced hospice care during the 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 every patient... because every day counts. Founded in 1998 by two Tucsonan women, Lynette Jaramillo and Agnes Poore, RN, Casa de la Luz Hospice has become a leading provider of superior hospice care to terminally ill patients and their families throughout Tucson and its surrounding communities.
