Catawba Regional Hospice
Hospice care is intended to provide enhanced quality of life for people who are facing the last months of their lives. It seeks to offer comfort and support so that individuals diagnosed with a life-limiting illness can achieve peace of mind in the ways that matter to them. When at all possible, the care is provided at the person’s home or wherever he or she is most comfortable.

Jenkins Funeral Home is the closest funeral home to Catawba Valley Hospice House.  Carl Jenkins serves on the Board of Directors of Catawba Regional Hospice.  They have two locations:

Catawba Valley Hospice House
3975 Robinson Road
Newton, NC 28658
828.466.0466

Sherrills Ford Hospice House
7473 Sherrills Ford Road
Sherrills Ford, NC 28673
828.466.0466

 "In all the years of serving families in Catawba County, I have never heard a negative comment from a family about Hospice," says Carl Jenkins.


In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve,  we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
