Home & Community Health Services, Inc. Hospice, an affiliate member of the Johnson Memorial Medical Center, provides choice, comfort, education and support for those with life limiting illnesses and those who care for them. By focusing care on comfort and striving to meet physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs, hospice seeks to assure that patients and their families have the highest quality of life possible. We offer specialized care that supports the whole person - mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
An individual plan of care is developed for each patient and family. Directed by the patient's physician, medical care is focused on end-of-life symptom management. The hospice nurse provides regular reports to the physician and coordinates other social, emotional and spiritual services, often involving pastoral and bereavement coordinators, home care aides, therapists, social workers and volunteers.
