Our mission: enrich the quality of living for those we serve

Hospice is a philosophy of care recognizing that everyone deserves to live out his or her life with respect and dignity, free of pain, and in an environment that promotes quality of life. Hospice is a team-oriented approach tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes.

What is Hospice?

Hospice care provides physical, emotional, and spiritual support for you and your family. Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Bereavement Services include 13 months of bereavement support offered by social workers and chaplains.
  • Home Health Aides help with activities of daily living and provide personal care, such as bathing, showering, along with emotional support.
  • Medications, Equipment, and Supplies related to the hospice diagnosis are provided.
  • Pain and Symptom Management is monitored closely by your primary physician, hospice medical director, and nursing staff to manage any pain and troubling symptoms.
  • Therapy (Physical, Occupational, or Speech) can be provided as part of the approved plan of care to help reduce pain or alleviate symptoms.
  • Social Workers help to ease emotional or family challenges and assist with advance care planning.
  • Spiritual Support and Chaplains are available to patients and their families.

A Care Team at Your Door

Hospice brings a caring team right to your door; whether your home is a house or apartment, nursing facility, assisted living or residential. Care is available from a team of professionals that may include nurses, social workers, home health aides, spiritual caregivers, chaplains, therapists, volunteers, and grief counselors.

Frequently Asked Questions

When and how does hospice care begin?

Hospice care can start as soon as orders have been signed by your primary physician. We are proud to do same day admissions at your earliest convenience.

When do I become eligible for hospice?

At any time, our professional staff can come and do an informational visit, at no cost, with you and your family. The informational visit is intended to explain the hospice benefit and review your health status. Your physician must support a life expectancy of six months or less if the illness runs its normal course to be eligible.

How is hospice paid for?

Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and almost all private insurance. Our team will work with you to determine and understand your level of coverage and eligibility for hospice services.
