Complete Care in the Comfort of Home
Anyone, at any time, can suddenly find themselves in need of help while recovering from illness or injury. Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services continues the tradition of your visiting nurse, providing comprehensive home care, including intravenous therapies and other specialties.
Our physical and occupational therapists provide rehabilitation at home. Whether it takes a few days or a number of weeks, our aides and homemakers will be there to provide caring support and assistance, making you as comfortable as possible while you recover at home.
Help For You and the Person You’re Caring For
If you’re struggling with the responsibility of caring for someone who’s frail or chronically ill, call Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services. We offer supportive services in the home, including in-home aides to help with personal care, and tasks of everyday living such as meal preparation, errands, and homemaking.
For those older adults who enjoy activities and the company of others during the day, but also need supervision, the Castle Center Life Enrichment Program, a licensed medical adult day program is an option to give older people the support and care necessary for independent living and give caregivers peace of mind.

Living Life to the Fullest Right to the End
Through Hospice at HCS, we provide comprehensive care and support for patients who are terminally ill. Registered nurses work with patients, their physicians and family members, to provide care as needed and to manage symptoms. The hospice philosophy seeks neither to hasten nor postpone death.
As part of our holistic approach, Hospice at HCS also provides counseling and trained volunteer support to help family members cope with the stress of caregiving and in dealing with their loss. Care is provided wherever people call home, including long term care facilities and assisted living facilities.
Helping Babies Arrive & Grow Up in Good Health
For expectant moms, we offer prenatal care, especially for those without health insurance. After delivery, Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services Healthy Starts nurses make home visits to advise parents about care and feeding and help give babies a healthy start in life.
As they grow, we continue working to keep all our children healthy, through well-child programs that provide physical examinations, immunizations and more, to all eligible families.
When Should I Consider Home Health Care?
When help is needed to recover at home after surgery or hospitalization. When assistance would help a friend or family member stay independent at home. When help is needed to make the transition from a nursing care facility to home. All of these are times to consider Home Health Care.
