Homeland Hospice provides hospice care so patients and families can make the most of every precious moment together.
What is hospice?
Hospice is appropriate for individuals when medical treatment can no longer cure their condition or a decision to stop aggressive treatment has been made. The Homeland Hospice care team helps patients live as fully and comfortably as possible by providing symptom and pain relief; care services and therapies; spiritual support; and on-call support.
Who can receive hospice?
A hospice evaluation can be requested when a patient has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. Homeland Hospice will meet with the patient, family and physician to discuss all available options and develop a plan of care centered on the patient’s wishes. We address the patient’s and family’s needs with the utmost compassion and respect.
Is hospice a place?
No, hospice is not a specific place. Patients can receive hospice care anywhere they call “home” – be it their residence or a skilled nursing or personal care community.
