AdvisaCare Home Health & Hospice is committed to providing care and comfort to patients facing a terminal illness. We provide comprehensive care for persons at the end of life.

A team of Physicians, Registered Nurses, Social Workers, Chaplains and CNAs provide highly specialized end of life care. Clients can expect regularly scheduled home visits by team members to evaluate the patient's condition, provide symptom management, address ongoing problems, and supervise care and comfort. Utilizing the interdisciplinary care team approach the hospice team helps to educate and instruct family members or primary care providers on how to manage physical and emotional symptoms such as pain, anxiety or confusion.

Other hospice services can include assistance with the personal care of the patient such as bathing and feeding; transportation to and from the inpatient unit, supplies, equipment and medications related to the primary illness, emotional support and counseling for both patient and family; spiritual counseling; short-term care for problems that cannot be managed at home and follow up bereavement counseling for family members after the patient's death.
