Hospice Care

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice Care begins with a referral when life expectancy of a person is 6 months or less. Hospice is a philosophy of care that emphasizes a person's quality of life, providing comfort and support to both the person requiring hospice services and the family during the remaining days, weeks or months of a person's life.

When is residential hospice care needed or recommended?

Hospice Care can be provided in a person's home, at an assisted living facility, a nursing home or a hospital. However, if a person's symptoms become too difficult or complex to manage, residential hospice care may be beneficial. Members of the staff at Quiet Oaks are experts at managing pain, nausea, breathing difficulties, anxiety, and other debilitating symptoms that may be present at the end-of-life. Residential hospice enables family members to focus on their loved one rather than care giving. Give us a call and we will help you make the best decision for you and your family.

Many families come to Quiet Oaks and share they wish they would have come sooner. Don't wait. Have those difficult conversations today and come out to Quiet Oaks for a tour. We are here to support your family no matter where you are on your end of life journey.
