Helping when you need it most
Home care occurs in the privacy, comfort, and familiarity of the patient's home. Because most of us wish to die at home among family and friends, Hospice enables patients with a life-limiting illness to stay at home and still receive quality care.
The patient's physician directs the medical care Hospice implements in the home. The Hospice team engages family members in caring for and supporting the patient, trains them in care techniques, and encourages open communication among family members and patients. Hospice services continue after the patient's death as our certified trained bereavement counselor helps family members deal with grief through visits, written communications, and support programs.
