What began as a dream of helping neighbors almost fifty years ago is turning 45 this year. Emilie Sasko was a nurse, volunteer, mother of 12 and a dreamer. She had a dream that she was being called to create a hospice, and supported by her deep faith, family and friends, founded the second hospice in the State of Florida. Emilie inspired others with her belief in the concept of neighbor-helping-neighbor, and Hospice of St. Francis began as an all-volunteer organization.
Now known as St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care, we continue to care for our community as an independent, not-for-profit provider. Our scope of services includes palliative care, hospice, and the Space Coast’s most extensive array of grief support programs. Emilie’s founding principle of neighbor-helping-neighbor is always in the forefront of our minds and our hearts.
We are deeply grateful to celebrate our 45th anniversary of serving Brevard County residents. It is an honor to be chosen to provide care for our neighbors in their most sacred time of life. We are proud to carry on Emilie’s legacy of service to other by fulfilling our mission of: Uplifting Lives. Uplifting Each Other. Uplifting Our Community.
