Home Health and Hospice:Hospice Service/Palliative Care

Hospice is a philosophy of care that focuses on quality-of-life care in the comfort of one’s own home. Through appropriate care and support, patients can live the last phase of life fully, with dignity and freedom from pain or discomfort. Hospice care treats the patient and family under the direction of a patient’s physician.

An interdisciplinary team approach helps terminally ill patients and their families cope with the physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual challenges during the end of life. Our services include:

  • Skilled nursing
  • Medical social workers
  • Home Health aides
  • Non-denominational chaplains
  • Hospice-trained volunteers
  • Certified Hospice and Palliative Care nurses
  • A hospital-based inpatient unit
  • Pain management
  • Emotional counseling
  • Bereavement support
