Physical, emotional and spiritual care

Hospice is a philosophy that focuses on providing expert care to people who are in the last stages of a life-limiting condition so patients and their families can focus on quality of life and what matters most, rather than the limitations of the disease. 

The goal of hospice care is to provide the best quality of life possible, through physical, spiritual, and emotional support that respects the patient’s wishes and ensures peace.

By approaching care from this perspective, we can effectively manage the needs of our patients and their families through transitions from hospital to home, from curative treatment to palliative comfort measures and from chronic needs to advanced care.

We are dedicated to each family and creating a sense of community and comfort through humankindness and care that extends to their spiritual needs, bereavement counseling, and support groups. Our services include: Nursing, Chaplain, Medical Director, Social Work, Personal Care, Volunteers and Bereavement. 

Hospice care services are available to patients and their loved ones 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our professional, dedicated staff is specially trained to work with hospice patients and family members to provide the critical, around the clock care they may need.

Importance of Early Intervention

Importance of Early Intervention

Hospice is considered to be the best model for quality, compassionate care for people with a life-limiting illness. By involving hospice early when a terminal illness exists, we can help to better manage a patient’s pain and symptoms. 

Our hospice team engages family members in the care and support of the patient, training them in caring techniques, encouraging open communication among the family members and patient. We help both the family and patient with the issues of the illness and the reality of death. Waiting to involve us when time is short often decreases a patient’s options for comfort and takes away quality time family members would have otherwise enjoyed.

Patient Resources

Become a Hospice Volunteer

Become a Hospice Volunteer

Hospice volunteers give the gift of themselves by providing support to patients and family members in a myriad of ways. Most of a volunteer’s time involves direct patient support. From providing companionship for the patient, to respite care to family members and vigil programs during the last hours of life, our volunteers give from the heart and touch the lives of others in extraordinary ways.

Many of our volunteers have experienced hospice care through the care a loved one received. With the knowledge of this unique and compassionate act, many people are inspired to give back. Upon joining the CHI Health at Home hospice team, all volunteers go through a detailed orientation to fully realize our mission and cultivate the range of skills needed to help patients and families.

Our hospice team makes a difference in so many lives. To join us as a volunteer, please contact us.
