Hospice Care

What Services Do We Provide?

 Hospice of Hope is a non-profit, community-based organization serving patients with a life-limiting illness and their families.   Our team of professionals has additional education and skills in hospice care. They will work with your doctor to make sure you get the best care possible. The staff assigned to care for you may include a hospice physician, nurse, social worker, chaplain, hospice aide, and pharmacist. We also have volunteers in each community available to supplement our care, based on your needs. Hospice care includes:  

  • Medications used to relieve symptoms, medical supplies and equipment all delivered to where the patient lives.
  • Comprehensive comfort care, including palliative radiation and chemotherapy.
  • Hospice Team support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
  • Highly skilled nursing care with an emphasis on symptom management and end-of-life care.
  • Personal care such as bathing, dressing, feeding or light household duties by Hospice Aides.
