HOSPICE CARE IN NURSING HOMES & ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES

“May you live all the days of your life.”

Creating a Partnership

In recent years, increasing numbers of nursing homes and assisted living facilities have recognized the value of offering hospice care to their residents at the end of life. Hospice at HCS – Home Healthcare, Hospice and Community Services has a staff dedicated to working with nursing homes and assisted living facilities. We  work as a team with facility staff, providing added clinical services, care plan consultations, and expertise in pain and symptom management.

The Hospice Philosophy

Hospice focuses on living life to the fullest while experiencing a terminal illness. Hospice is a holistic approach to end of life care, focusing on quality of life and offering physical, emotional and spiritual comfort.

The hospice goal is to help the patient and family members come to terms with death as a natural part of life.  The hospice team of nurses, aides and other professionals involve the patient and family members in making decisions about their care.

Hospice neither prolongs life, nor hastens death. Since cure is no longer the goal, hospice focuses on the quality of life and a dignified death.

Our Mission

The HCS mission is to provide services which enable people to function throughout life at their optimal level of health, well-being and independence, according to their personal beliefs and choices.

Hospice at HCS is Medicare certified and licensed by the State of NH.
