What is in-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.

In-home hospice care provides comfort care at the end of life where you live -- your home.

An Expert Support System Comes to You

in-home hospiceA hospice nurse visits your home to assess you physicially, develop a care plan, refill medications, tend to wounds, answer questions, and coordinate with your physician. The home health aide bathes 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 chat 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. Your surrounded by your familiar belongings. You won't have to make emergency trips to the ER. 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 have a quiet moment.
