An integrated approach to compassionate end-of-life care.
Thoughtfully managed end-of-life care can be a great gift to patients and their families and loved ones. At Hancock Health, we take an integrated approach to hospice services focused on patients and their comfort. Our dedicated physicians, nurses, social workers, aides, chaplains, volunteers, and other healthcare professionals collaborate with families and patients to manage pain, provide emotional support, and offer the best quality of life possible.
Inpatient Hospice Care
Sometimes, especially when symptoms are difficult to control, in-home hospice care is less than ideal. That’s why Hancock Regional Hospital created a seven-bed unit designed to provide expert end-of-life care in a homelike setting. In our special area, families relax in front of the fireplace, lounge in recliners, watch the game on big-screen TVs, and prepare their favorite dishes in our comfortable kitchen while their loved one is relieved of troubling symptoms often associated with the end of life. They can celebrate the life of their loved one while counting on our specially trained hospice staff for medical, social, emotional, and spiritual support in a setting that feels more like a home than a hospital. Please call us at (317) 468-4522 to discuss your options.
We understand that when patients stop responding to treatment, their doctors don’t stop caring. We always make it a priority to update referring physicians. We know how much you care about your patients and their families, and we are honored when you put your faith in us at this difficult time.
