We understand that you and your family may prefer to receive care in a familiar and comfortable setting, so we come to your home or other residential setting. Our team of caregivers includes you, your family, physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, grief counselors, therapists and others. Hospice team members visit as often as needed to monitor and control symptoms, coordinate care needs, and provide emotional and spiritual support. We are also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Palliative is medical or comfort care that provides relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. Palliative care can be combined with curative treatment, at any age and during any stage of a serious illness, such as cancer or Alzheimer’s disease.
Hospice is end-of-life care for patients who no longer benefit from curative treatment and whose life expectancy is six months or less. The heart of hospice care is the belief that we have the right to die pain-free, with dignity and with the comforting knowledge that our families will receive bereavement support for up to 13 months.
