Programs & Services

Hospice services are available to persons who can no longer benefit from curative treatment while palliative care programs provide care to those who are seeking curative treatment or are not yet ready for hospice care. The typical hospice patient has a life expectancy measured in months rather than years. However, studies show that people who use hospice services live, on average, a month longer than those who do not, if the disease takes its normal course.

For hospice patients and their loved ones, help is just a phone call away. Patients routinely receive in-home services of a nurse, nursing assistant, social worker, spiritual care provider, volunteer and other members of Hospice of the Western Reserve’s transdisciplinary team.

Additional services include 24-hour telephone access to support, medications, medical supplies and equipment related to the diagnosis, continuous care at home during periods of crisis, trained volunteers and bereavement services.

Specialized Care

Many people think hospice is only for people with cancer. In fact, it is an important option for anyone with any serious illness. Hospice of the Western Reserve staff has extensive training in the areas of dementia, pediatrics, perinatal care, cardiopulmonary disease and caring for Veterans. Learn more…
