Someone’s Always Available
In addition to regular visits from your hospice team, families can reach us at any time with questions and concerns. A nurse case manager is on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our staff is closely involved as death approaches and may be present at the time of death. This is one of hospice’s greatest strengths—helping the patient and loved ones cope as a person approaches life’s end.
Peace and Comfort—and Comprehensive Medicare Coverage
Homeland Hospice believes that needless pain brings unnecessary anguish to a person who is nearing the end of life, as well as to the loved ones caring for them. This is why our foremost goal is to bring pain under control as quickly as possible.
Homeland Hospice care includes complementary therapies, such as music, art and massage that bring additional comfort. We also offer spiritual support, as well as bereavement support to the family for a full 13 months following the death of their loved one.
Many families who have been served by Homeland Hospice comment that they wish they had taken advantage of hospice services sooner to help make the patient’s final days more peaceful, comfortable and meaningful. We help patients and loved ones deal with decision, challenges and frustrations that may arise. Our goal is peace of mind and comfort of body and lifestyle, making the time receiving hospice services meaningful, enriching and worry-free.
The Center of Our Team Is You
Homeland team members include the registered nurse case manager, hospice medical director, attending physician, volunteer coordinator, social workers, counselors, home health aides, and others. All team members are patient and family-focused…you remain in control and at the center of the team—always.
Hospice care can begin when there is a prognosis of six months or less, but there is not a six- month limit if the physician certifies that the patient continues to meet guidelines for receiving care. Payment is normally covered by Medicare when treatment is prescribed by a physician. Private pay and Medicaid for qualified individuals are two other options.
Thank You for taking the time to get to know Homeland Hospice.
