Hospice House

Exceptional Hospice Care in a Home-Like Setting

Patients often prefer to spend their final days in their home, but we recognize that hospice patients sometimes need additional, specialized end-of-life care when symptoms cannot be managed in the home environment. Hospice House at Partners In Care is a specialty hospital for inpatient hospice care, creating an oasis of tranquility and comfort during this difficult time where families can be together without the responsibility of personal care of their loved one.

At Hospice House, every detail for the patient 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, volunteers, massage therapists, musicians, and others to embrace the patient and their family members and deliver excellent, compassionate care. We’re here to make the final moments of life comfortable, dignified, and peaceful.

When intense symptom management support is needed, Hospice House provides exceptional hospice care in a peaceful, homelike setting. Once symptoms are managed, patients may return home to resume care from their regular hospice team. Also, if a loved one of a hospice patient in the community could use a temporary break from daily caregiving, Hospice House is a safe and comfortable place for patients and respite for the caregiver.

“It’s easy to be grateful when there are wonderful people like you in the world. Your kindness, caring hearts and comfort were a tremendous help to my family while you tended to my mom with dignity. Although this was a difficult time, we felt very comforted she was in the best hands. The Hospice House facility was wonderful for us to use as a family. I will be forever grateful for your care of mom in her and our time of need.”
