Company Overview

St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care

Emilie Sasko, R.N. created Hospice of St. Francis in 1977 because of the need she saw for higher levels of care, understanding and compassion for patients nearing the end of their lives. This hospice has grown from our early days as a volunteer-only provider to today having a professional staff of over 100 and dozens of dedicated, highly trained and experienced volunteers. Hospice of St. Francis is, today, Brevard’s longest-serving and only independent not-for-profit hospice. We are deeply grateful for the confidence Brevard residents have shown in us since Emilie Sasko first had the vision to create Hospice of St. Francis. We believe it is because, from our first day, we have lived the mission to provide compassionate, quality care for the terminally ill, support for their loved ones and resources for community members faced with end-of-life issues.
