Hospice can mark a profound shift in your goals for care. This change to comfort care looks different for every family. That’s why our first step is understanding your needs and values.

Medicare-approved support from Compassus ensures you have the care you need, especially when facing urgent medical concerns. We work with you and your doctor to address pain and other symptoms.

Care includes practical, emotional and spiritual support for everyone affected by a serious illness. We’re here to help you make every moment of life as meaningful as possible.

What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a type of healthcare that aims to reduce suffering and promote comfort at the end of an individual’s life. Pain and any other symptoms are managed around the clock, and the hospice team focuses greatly on spiritual and emotional health as well.

The foundations of hospice include nursing care with an emphasis on managing symptoms, practical assistance, and emotional support. Caring for a loved one at home can be challenging. Our goal is to provide timely services to help your family make the most of your time together.

Services Include:

  • Home medical equipment and personal supplies
  • Around-the-clock access to care
  • Managing pain and other symptoms to your goals
  • Hospice aides to help with the tasks of daily living
  • Medical social services
  • Spiritual care and support
  • Physical, occupational, dietary, and speech therapies
  • Support from volunteers
  • Respite care (relief) for family caregivers – Short-term relief
  • Ongoing Grief counseling for the patient, family, and friends

Hospice has four levels of care, carried out by a team of professionals to ensure dignity and comfort at the end of an individual’s life. Whether it be a hospital, nursing home, assisted living or your personal residence, care is provided wherever you call home.
