House of the Dove inpatient care

House of the Dove by Compassus provides high-quality, compassionate hospice care to improve the quality of life for patients with life-limiting illnesses. Those services include routine and GIP hospice care and respite care tailored to patients’ individualized needs.  

The primary focus of hospice care is to enhance the quality of life for patients in their final stages of illness, while also providing support and comfort to their families. While hospice care is available in different settings, including the patient’s own home, the choice of that setting depends on the patient and family’s preferences, as well as the required level of care and support.  

Some patients and families may opt for hospice care at a facility, such as House of the Dove by Compassus, to benefit from comprehensive symptom management, essential medical equipment, family support, caregiver respite and access to emergency care services.
