Hospice Services

Our Hospice program is dedicated to providing support for people entering the final stages of their lives. Alliance Home Health Care and Hospice strives to enhance the quality of a person’s remaining life by making the care process as comfortable as possible for the patient and family.

The interdisciplinary Alliance Home Health Care and Hospice team:

  • Manages pain and symptoms
  • Assists with the emotional, psychosocial and spiritual needs
  • Provides needed drugs, medical supplies and equipment
  • Instructs the family on how to care for the patient
  • Delivers special services like speech and physical therapy when needed
  • Provides bereavement care and counseling to surviving family and friends

Anyone with a terminal illness who has decided to stop seeking curative treatment is eligible for hospice. Most hospice care is paid for by Medicare, and most insurance companies cover hospice care.

Hospice begins with a visit from a nurse, who meets with the patient and the family to put together a care plan that fits with the patient’s values and needs. The patient and the family are considered the unit of care, as the family needs much support throughout this unfamiliar and stressful time.

Our dedicated team of in-home hospice professionals include:

  • Palliative nursing
  • Physician services
  • Pain management
  • Home health aides
  • Social workers
  • Spiritual support/chaplain services
  • Dietary services
  • Therapies (physical, occupational, speech)
  • Therapeutic music
  • Volunteers
  • Durable medical equipment
  • Bereavement
  • Caregiver support groups
  • Resource referral, such as bereavement camps for children

Hospice does not replace the primary caregiver; rather, it provides an extra set of hands. In fact, Alliance Home Health Care and Hospice volunteers might also visit to read to the patient or offer a listening ear for family members.

Home Health & Hospice Care

  • Alliance Home Health Care understands the difficulties associated with in-home care. Our nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, medical social workers, dietitians, and home health aides work closely with a patient’s physician to establish a proper treatment plan.
  • Our hospice care services are designed to help our patients live each day to the fullest extent possible in your home—and to provide comfort and support to their families as well. Patients receive visits as needed, and the hospice team is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week for support and care, as needed.
