A Place of Care Now and Later
HomeCare Hospice knows that a diagnosis necessitating hospice care is one that can cause mixed emotions in the patient and family. We hope to minimize any stress by providing quality care and preserving the dignity of the patient in their own home or the home of a family member or caregiver. The place of care is wherever the patient calls home, including nursing homes, group homes, or inpatient facilities.
Our hospice services also extend to the family throughout this process, including emotional and spiritual support, as well as bereavement services. HomeCare Hospice remains in contact with your family for up to a year following the loss of a loved one.
We provide bereavement support and counseling that will enable your family members to move beyond the loss and back into a healthy lifestyle. During these months of adjustment, HomeCare Hospice is a source of spiritual, physical and emotional support twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
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.
