Hospice Care

At Amedisys Hospice Care, our focus is on quality of life. While hospice services are usually centered in the home, our staff can also provide care in local hospitals and extended care facilities.

A Comprehensive Approach

Our interdisciplinary team of hospice professionals coordinates their efforts on behalf of the patient and their loved ones. Hospice staff are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The hospice team consists of:

  • Nurses
  • Physicians
  • Social workers
  • Hospice assistants
  • Pastoral care coordinators
  • Trained volunteers
  • Dieticians
  • Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapists

"Most people dream of living the fullest life possible, for as long as possible...right up until a peaceful end, at home, where they are comfortable, alert, free of pain and surrounded by people and things they love. Hospice is making this a reality for many."
