What is Hospice care?

Hospice care involves a team-oriented, total-care approach to patients whose disease no longer responds to curative treatment, or when patients are no longer seeking curative/aggressive therapies. It is a choice which expertly focuses on the patient’s pain and symptom management, but also addresses the spiritual, emotional, psychological, financial, and legal needs of the patient and family. Hospice seeks to allow patients to continue an alert, pain-free life, and to manage their symptoms so that their last months or days may be spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by love. In most cases, care is provided in the patient’s home, but other settings may include hospitals, nursing homes or an assisted living facility.

Home Hospice is a community based hospice, with local owners who live and work to provide the very best hospice care to the people in the communities we serve. We pride ourselves on providing a deeper, more personal level of care to our patients, and handle even the most complex cases. The mission of hospice is constantly in our hearts and minds as we strive to serve individuals and their families.
