Considering Hospice

At Bethany Hospice, our focus is quality of life for those individuals dealing with a life-limiting illness.

We offer a holistic approach to care, including both the physical and emotional needs of the patients and caregivers.  We provide supplemental care to assist the patient's primary caregiver.  The primary caregiver could be a family member, friend or facility staff.  Patients who are able to care for themselves in a home setting are also accepted.

The Bethany Hospice Team includes Physicians, Nurses, Social Workers, Chaplains, Hospice Aides, Counselors, and Volunteers.  All team members are trained to assess pain and our clinicians are experts in pain control and symptom management.  We maintain an on-call staff to address the after hours needs of our patients and caregivers.

The hospice benefit is a comprehensive health care approach designed for patients and their families coping with a life-limiting illness.  Our goal at Bethany Hospice is to provide the highest quality of care to help our patients achieve the most comfort  and dignity possible.  We not only provide care and support to our patients but to their families and caregivers as well.

Our hospice team consists of nurses, home health aides , social workers, volunteers, chaplains and bereavement care.  Other therapies are offered as needed.

Care is provided in all settings, wherever the patient calls home. (Examples include: the patient's home, personal care homes and nursing facilities)

Hospice services are covered by Medicare and Medical Assistance.  In addition, some commercial insurance policies offer a hospice care benefit.  Bethany Hospice provides services regardless of patient's ability to pay.

Patient Services are provided without regard to race, color, creed, age, gender, sexual orientation, handicap (mental or physical), or place of national origin.
