In The Home

Patients who choose to receive end-of-life care in their own home can expect the same exceptional experience we give patients in a nursing home or at Hospice House.  Our goal is to give patients and their families physical and spiritual comfort.  We'll visit your home to provide:

  • Skilled and supportive nursing care - hands on care on consultation for pain and symptom management and wound care
  • Medical social workers for counseling patients and families
  • Chaplain for spiritual support
  • Volunteers for friendship and visitation
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapy for palliative needs
  • Dietary counseling
  • Medical equipment and supplies related to the terminal diagnosis
  • Medications related to the terminal diagnosis
  • Continuous nursing care with an exacerbation of the patient's condition requiring skilled monitoring
  • Bereavement support for the family for 15 months following the patient's death

We believe it's important to live each moment to tis fullest.  We provide "extra touches" such as:

  • Pet therapy - Professionally trained therapy dogs visit patients to offer comfort and companionship.
  • Massages and nail care
  • Personal visits to read, listen or play cards
  • Life review - We'll create a family keepsake of transcribed stories as told by the patient.
