Home Care

As we age, activities we once enjoyed become more challenging. In some cases, normal day-to-day tasks can become too troublesome or burdensome. Community can help with bathing and dressing, housekeeping, and even transportation to medical appointments.

We offer this level of personal service from three hours a day to around-the-clock. For patients with more pressing needs, we also offer help with medication reminders, preparing meals, and more. Community takes pride in giving all of our clients the same high quality of care regardless of their needs.

Home Health

Has a parent or partner had surgery and required wound care? Have they been involved in an accident that limits their movement or do they need in-home medical equipment? Community has skilled nurses and therapists who will enter the home to perform these tasks and more.

This care isn’t limited to the home, but rather where the patient is living. Whether it’s their house, an assisted living facility or nursing home, we will make sure their needs are met. This includes physical, speech, and occupational therapy as well.

It can be sad when a loved one’s life is nearing the end. When using Community Home Health & Hospice, you are assured that their quality of life during those final months are comfortable and peaceful. We provide hospice care where they live, including medical attention, spiritual support, and necessary equipment.

Although it can be a bittersweet time, hospice care allows family and friends to spend time with the patient while we ease their pain. Our teams consist of physicians, nurses, bath aides, and other health care professionals.

The hospice team was kind, concerned, very professional and the expertise of every team member was crystal clear. They answered our questions and other questions we hadn’t thought of yet.

Grief Support For Families

Community Home Health & Hospice was started in 1977 by Lorraine Berndt and in 1984, established one of the first hospice facilities in the State of Washington. Berndt believed patients and their families would be better served by community-based care. More than 40 years later, Berndt’s vision is still going strong.

A part of that vision included free grief support to families whether or not their loved one was under our hospice care. Today, anyone grieving the death of a loved one can gather and heal with personalized, professional guidance at our Longview and Vancouver locations.

We provide grief support groups in Cowlitz County and Clark County as well as Camp Cedars, a youth summer camp. For more information contact or 360.703.0300.

A Community Relationship

In many cases, Community Home Health & Hospice management, administration, and staff have known our clients and their families for years. Through community activities, our children playing sports together, or just saying hello during a walk around the neighborhood.
