Our hospice professionals bring expert care to your loved one wherever they call home.
Hospice care provides medical, emotional, and spiritual care for patients in their last months of life. Hospice care is a family affair and the patient’s family is encouraged to be involved in their loved one’s plan of care. A team of hospice specialists including doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, aides, and trained volunteers helps the patient stay comfortable. Working together with the family and their primary doctor, the team adds an extra layer of care for the patient.
Generations of care, compassion and love
Community Home Health & Hospice offers hospice care at home (wherever your loved one lives) and in our care center. Short-term respite care is also available when a family member needs a rest from caring for their loved one at home. For generations, Southwest Washington residents have counted on us for compassionate and loving hospice care.
Exceptional Support of Patients and Families
Most patients and their families prefer to receive hospice care at home. Being encircled by family, friends, and pets in familiar surroundings brings extra comfort to the patient. Medical equipment (like hospital beds) is delivered to the patient’s home. The hospice team makes scheduled visits and communicates regularly with the patient’s primary doctor. Even free pet assistance is available.
Homelike Setting, Easy Family Access
There may come a time when the patient needs around-the-clock nursing in our care center to keep them comfortable when pain or other symptoms can’t be controlled at home. Family, friends, and pets are always welcome to visit the homelike center, and may even stay with the patient in their private suite. Each patient room has access to beautifully-landscaped garden areas. Visitors enjoy family cooking and dining areas, quiet spaces, and children’s areas as well as other amenities.
When caregivers need a break
Caring day and night for a loved one on hospice at home can be exhausting. A family caregiver needs to take care of themselves to provide the best possible care. That’s where we can help with respite care support. Short-term respite care allows a family member to get a break from caregiving duties while we care for the patient in our care center.
