Hospice House

Hospice House at Partners In Care is the only in-patient hospice facility in Central Oregon—and one of only very few in the state of Oregon.

We know that patients often prefer to spend their final days in their home, but we also recognize that sometimes loved ones and their families might need the support of an environment where symptoms could be better managed. For these times, Hospice House at Partners In Care becomes a place to call home. We offer a warm, welcoming facility where end-of-life medical symptoms can be managed without a hospital-like environment. This service helps families who need relief from caregiving duties so they can make the most of their time together.

Every detail is attended to by a staff of physicians and registered nurses, many of whom are certified in palliative and hospice care. They are joined by certified nursing assistants, social workers, counselors, chaplains, dieticians, volunteers, massage therapists, musicians, and others to embrace the patient and their family members with compassionate care and comfort. Our goal? To make the final period of life comfortable, dignified, and peaceful.

Hospice House Clinical Supervisor

Jenni Carver-Ross, RN, CHPN, native of Prineville, received her nursing training at Central Oregon Community College, and earned her certification as a specialist in Hospice and Palliative Care nursing. Her experience in a variety of healthcare settings gives her an understanding of the changing needs of patients.

Prior to her appointment as Hospice House clinical supervisor, Jenni was a Home Health case manager, and then moved to an RN support nurse role for both Home Health and Hospice. “We are only born once and only die once; both are a laboring process. I feel honored to have a part in caring for patients and their families through the final chapter.” she said.
