Why Choose Hospice?
To profoundly enhance the end-of-life for individuals by ensuring access to quality, compassionate hospice care.
To provide quality and compassionate end-of-life care for individuals and their families, regardless of ability to pay.
Hospice means a special way of caring for people who have limited life expectancy. The Hospice concept affirms life and views death as a normal process of human existence.
Care is provided in the home, assisted living or nursing home. This enables the patient to be encircled by the love and supportive care of family and friends, in the security and comfort of familiar surroundings. Inpatient care is available at Hardin Memorial Hospital when necessary.
Our goal is to enrich the quality of life for patients and their families by meeting their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. The focus is on supportive care, with emphasis on relief of distressing symptoms. The use of extraordinary measures is not a part of Hospice care.
Hospice care is provided by a team working together to assist the caregiver in caring for the patient at home, assisted living or nursing home. The caregiver is the person(s) primarily responsible for the day to day care of the patient.
