It’s experience gained over more than 30 years serving the community our nurses and aids call home. It’s the comfort your neighbors, family, and friends experienced, when compassion mattered most.
It’s the reason others in your life know and request us by name.
While nursing homes do offer “end-of-life palliative care” in a patient’s final days, there is an important distinction between this service and true hospice care, which can only be provided by a certified Hospice agency. Authentic hospice care spans final months – not days – and combines end-of-life symptom management with spiritual support and grief counseling for patient and family, alike. Hospice of Orange and Sullivan Counties, Inc. is contracted in nursing homes throughout Orange and Sullivan Counties to provide services that retain the dignity of patients and ease the burden on loved-ones turned caregivers.
How can Hospice Help?
Our team includes nurses, hospice aides, social workers, bereavement specialists, and chaplains all working alongside the patient and family to address physical and emotional care, and provide spiritual support.
This ensures the patient receives the greatest benefit, increasing patient and family understanding of their prognosis, care plan and support.
Hospice aid specialists are available three to five days a week to provide personal care services that maintain a patient’s hygiene, health, and dignity. This compassionate help includes bathing, dressing, skin & hair care, mouth care, assistance with meals, companionship, emotional support for family, and much more.
Care of this scope and quality is available through Medicare at no additional cost to families. Which nursing homes have Hospice, and does your loved one qualify? We’re here to answer your questions because comfort begins with reducing uncertainty.
