History Of Soreo

Owned and operated by CEO Wendy Swager, Soreo In-Home Support Services (SIHSS) was established in 2000 to help address the ever-growing need for high quality in home support for aging adults and individuals with disabilities in the Tucson, Casa Grande and Phoenix communities.

In 2012 Soreo Hospice & Palliative Care was founded to ensure individuals toward the end of life have access to an array of services without having to contract with multiple providers.

At Soreo, we understand the physical, emotional, spiritual, and social l needs individuals and their loved ones face when dealing with aging, disability, or a life limiting illness. Soreo Hospice & Palliative Care is uniquely equipped to treat and manage these special needs and circumstances. Our solid multi-disciplinary team of registered nurses and health care professionals available 24hrs/day, 7days/week, 365 days/year to ensure patient comfort, address loved one’s questions and concerns, and provide education and support to residential facilities and healthcare organizations.

While we recognize that most individuals are not ever “ready” for hospice, we strive to make the journey less difficult with our compassionate patient & family centered approach to care. Every one of our staff is committed to promoting dignity and quality of life through the effective management of pain and discomfort, attending to the unmet emotional, spiritual, and social needs of all involved education about the disease process and attending to the emotional, social and spiritual needs of individuals and their loved ones.
