What is At-Home Hospice Care?

The experience of receiving hospice care at home is not familiar to many people. But, once someone accesses this service, they usually wish they called sooner.

At-home hospice care provides comfort care at the end of life where you or your loved one lives — the place you call home — including an assisted living or nursing home community. Learn more about assisted living options.

An Expert Support System Comes To You

Elderly Home Hospice PatientA South Jersey at-home hospice nurse visits your home to assess you or your loved one physically, develop a care plan, refill medications, tend to wounds, answer questions, and coordinate with your physician. The home health aide bathes you or your loved one in the privacy of their bedroom or in a hospital bed set up in your secluded living room. The social worker or spiritual support counselor chats with you and your family around the kitchen table or in the family room.

This intimate care, the emotional conversations, and the supportive medical attention occur in the comfort of your own home. You’re surrounded by your familiar belongings. You won’t have to make emergency trips to the ED. You don’t need to navigate hospital parking, elevators, and hallways. Your family doesn’t have to share a room with another patient and their family. You don’t have to try to ignore the hustle and bustle of a hospital wing to share a quiet moment.

Benefits of Receiving Hospice Care in Your South Jersey Home

Families can:

  • Be in familiar surroundings. When you use South NJ in-home hospice, you can sit on your own couch and use your own bathroom. When living with serious illness, or caring for someone with serious illness, the comforts of home are priceless.
  • Spend quality time together. Creating additional memories and sharing important words is critical during this time. When you are at home there will be more opportunities for conversation, memory-making projects, and other bonding activities.
  • Create a schedule and care plan that works best. Without the back-and-forth travel to the hospital, you can create a schedule and a care plan that is easier to stick to.
  • Never a need to call 911. Families are relieved to discover they could get help during any crisis by calling Samaritan at any time of day. Someone is available to talk 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If a problem can’t be resolved over the phone, a nurse will visit. There is no need to call 911 or visit the emergency room.
