At the center of hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free, with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. It provides personalized services and a caring community so necessary preparation for death can be attained in a way that is satisfactory for you and your loved ones.
Hospice care can take place in a variety of settings, wherever your loved one calls home. Compassionate care provides the physical, emotional and spiritual resources needed to make the most of every moment.
Hospice care may be right for your loved one when living with an end-stage illness, which has a six-month life expectancy, should the disease run its normal course. There are no limits on the amount of time you can receive hospice, but your physician must order the service once every six months to determine if our care is still appropriate.
Hospice care provides comfort and support for patients with all types of illnesses including:
- Heart, lung, vascular, kidney and neuromuscular diseases
- All types of dementia
If you feel that your loved one may benefit from hospice care, we are only a phone call away. A member of our experienced staff can work with you and your loved one’s physician to determine if hospice care is an option.
