Whether at home, in nursing facilities, in group homes, or our own Kaplan Family Hospice Residence, Hospice care normalizes family relationships and provides opportunities to make lasting memories. A trained Hospice team takes the burden of responsibility off the primary caregiver and family, allowing families to engage and share more quality time together.
No matter where home is, Hospice allows patients to receive care in a comfortable, familiar setting, while surrounded by family, friends, and even pets. Patients receive the same symptom management and palliative care that would be provided in a hospital, but without having to be separated from the people, foods, belongings, and routines associated with home. Family dinners can continue, along with some favorite shared activities.
