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.
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.Contact Us to Learn More!
Wesley Homes Hospice understands that patients prefer to receive care in a familiar and comfortable setting, so we come to your home or other residential setting.
Our team of caregivers includes you, your family, physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, grief counselors, therapists and others. Hospice team members will visit as often as needed to monitor and control symptoms, coordinate care needs and provide emotional and spiritual support. We are also available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for symptom management.
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.
