About HomeCare Hospice
In 2014, HomeCare Hospice opened its original office in Jackson, Mississippi. Since our founding, we have created a reputation as being a leading provider of hospice and palliative care service throughout the state of Mississippi. At HomeCare Hospice, we are and remain to be a truly patient-centered organization who provides services wherever the patient calls home.
HomeCare Hospice is a Mississippi-based palliative care provider. However, our hospice services are not limited to the cities where our offices are located throughout the communities. With offices based in Jackson, Hattiesburg, Senatobia, and New Albany, we have the ability to travel and care for Mississippians throughout most of the state. The excellence of hospice and palliative care that we provide to our patients has led to HomeCare Hospice being known as “The Little Hospice with the Big Heart.”
What is Hospice or Palliative Care?
Hospice and palliative care is the treatment to help a terminal patient live as well as possible by increasing their quality of life. They help address and ease the hardships of symptom management, psycho-social, and spiritual affliction that affects both the patient and their family. By shifting focus towards increasing the quality of life of the patient rather than the longevity of life, patients and families alike have a chance to find peace of mind to focus on the present moment.
The team at HomeCare Hospice includes physicians, nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA), Chaplains, trained volunteers, therapists, social workers and more – all who are seasoned professionals. They are well-equipped and capable to help with the medical and emotional demands that hospice entails. Our team recognizes how difficult of a time this can be for our patients and their families. We hope to ease physical and emotional pain with our high-quality care and attention to the comfort and dignity of each and every one of our patients.
End of life care does not work on a schedule; at HomeCare Hospice, we provide support 24/7 to meet the needs of every patient, no matter the time of day. There is no inconvenient time to contact us. We are here to help with medical assistance, spiritual support, and emotional support whenever you need it. If an emergency arises, HomeCare Hospice is never more than a phone call away.
