Hospice Care

The Presbyterian Healthcare at Home hospice program provides physical, emotional, and spiritual support to patients and their families when curative measures are no longer the best option. Hospice does not prolong life or rush death, but allows for a peaceful and natural transition, while giving someone time to do the things they love.

Our multidisciplinary hospice care team discusses options and timing, and helps patients maintain their dignity, comfort, and quality of life during the hospice process.

The frequency of visits and the level of care is based on the condition and stage of the illness, and a specific treatment plan is developed based on a patient’s individualized needs, in discussion with the patient, the family and the care team.

Patients may choose either outpatient or inpatient hospice care. The goal of hospice is to provide care in the most comfortable place for the patient. If hospice care in the home is not an option due to pain or symptom management, the patient’s physician may determine that inpatient hospice care may be more appropriate or comfortable.

Our hospice program is accredited by The Joint Commission, Medicare and Medicaid certified, and state licensed.
