Our hospice program is a state-licensed, Medicare certified, and Joint Commission accredited program at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital.

Hospice services are available to anyone who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, Alzheimer’s or dementia and has a limited life expectancy and are no longer seeking curative treatment.

Hospice services are appropriate for those suffering from cancer, end stage cardiac or respiratory conditions, AIDS, end stage renal disease and other illnesses that are life limiting.

Hospice recognizes dying as part of the normal process of living and focuses on maintaining the quality of life remaining. Hospice affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. It exists in the hope and belief that, through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to personal needs, patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.

The Hospice team, consisting of the patient's own physician, a Medical Director, nurses, social workers, counselors, bath aids, therapists, volunteers and spiritual care representative, 

works with the patient, family, and caregivers to develop a plan of care that meets the needs of everyone involved. Hospice care seeks to relieve symptoms, provide emotional support, and most importantly, allow a person to live his/her remaining days with dignity in the setting of their choosing. Hospice is provided wherever the patient calls home.
