Home Care Services

Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice Home Care is intermittent care – care provided several times a week or less for a short period of time – that requires special skills not ordinarily carried out by a lay person. Care may be provided more often if the medical condition of the patient requires it, but it is not private duty nursing. Care is provided by professionals and paraprofessionals.

“The hospice nurses who visited my mother from Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice, gave her the very best and kindest care. They were also her advocates so she could die with dignity and according to her wishes. My mother was comforted, while remaining in familiar surroundings… Your Hospice nurses, aides, and wonderful chaplain were all gently guiding and helping me with information, listening, and suggesting ways to support my mother’s journey. I certainly miss my mother but feel that we came through together to the place she wanted and needed to be. I could not have steered this course without the steady support of the Hospice team.”

Hospice

Hospice is a form of care; it is not a place. Our hospice care is available to patients who have advanced diseases that are considered incurable. Hospice care is about living each day to its fullest and helps to make a patient’s last months and days as comfortable  and fulfilling as possible…making every moment count. Hospice is a philosophy, not a place. Care is provided in the familiar surroundings of home or home-like setting. Care can also be provided in a long-term care setting or a hospital.
