Hospice House

Hospice House at Partners In Care is unique. It is the only hospice in-patient facility in Central Oregon—and one of only three 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 is especially useful for families who need to be relieved of 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 who 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, is a native of Prineville, received her nursing training at Central Oregon Community College, and earned her certification as a specialist in Hospice & Palliative Care nursing. Her experience in a variety of healthcare settings gives her an understanding of the changing needs of patients. Over the past 13 years, she worked in adult foster care homes and at St. Charles hospitals in Bend and Prineville (medical-surgical, ICU, ER, and immediate care). 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. It is truly sacred,” she said.
