We believe that every day of life has meaning. That's why your comfort, safety and quality of life guide every step of our care. A life-limiting illness should not define who you are. With the help of our attentive and professional hospice team, you will find peace and meaningful moments together.
The four general types of hospice care are:
Palliative Care provides relief from the pain, symptoms and the stress of a serious illness. Patients may continue curative treatments and move in and out of palliative services as needed. Support includes:
- Managing complex pain and other symptoms
- Emotions support for patients and families
- Reducing the side effects of medications or treatments
- Planning your healthcare goals and priorities
Whether recovering from surgery, illness or coping with a chronic condition, home can be an ideal place to receive care. Home health options are often less expensive than a hospital, rehabilitation facility or a nursing home.
Infusion therapy enables patients to receive treatment without having to go to a hospital or clinic. Many people prefer home IV treatment because it offers greater independence and flexibility. Infusion therapy is provided by Ascension at Home Together with Compassus.
Recent studies show IV therapy at home is just as safe and effective as therapy in a clinical setting. It often costs less and many patients say they recovery faster and with less stress.
Premier care is non-medical assistance enabling people to stay healthy, safe and independent while living at home. Care may be as simple as friendly companionship for an elderly family member or help with everyday activities. It also includes more advanced personal care, including bathing assistance and dressing.
