Wesley Homes Hospice

Bringing the spirit of life
to each moment



Offering superior in-home hospice and palliative care, Wesley Homes Hospice focuses on supporting the quality of life for patients and their families and bringing the spirit of life to each moment.

Compassionate Care at the End of Life

As a patient nears the final stages of a life-limiting illness, care needs change from curative treatment to comfort, quality of life and support. Based on the wishes of the patient and the family, the Wesley Homes Hospice team develops care plans that include physical, spiritual, emotional and social support services for terminally ill patients and their families. Our integrated team of care professionals also provides assistance with personal care, education and guidance during this end-of-life journey. All patients and their loved ones are given the same respect, compassion and confidentiality, regardless of diagnosis, gender, ethnicity, age, faith or economic status.

How are Palliative and Hospice Care Different?

Palliative is medical or comfort care that provides relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. Palliative care can happen during curative treatment, at any age and during any stage of a serious illness, such as cancer or Alzheimer’s disease.

Hospice is end-of-life care for patients who no longer benefit from curative treatment and whose life expectancy is six months or less. The heart of hospice care is the belief that we have the right to die pain-free, with dignity and with the comforting knowledge that our families will receive bereavement support for up to 13 months.
