The Right Care at the Right Time
When the goal of care is comfort rather than cure, Mercy Hospice is there for you. We understand how emotionally and physically challenging it can be and we’ll be there with hope, support and compassion. We’ve traveled this road many times before and we know how to help, with comprehensive services including nursing care, personal care, spiritual support, medications and medical equipment.
For individuals and families who are experiencing a life-limiting illness, Mercy Hospice provides the latest in symptom management approaches through the services of an interdisciplinary team. This team provides expert, respectful care one individual and family at a time. Hospice care is provided in the patient’s home or in a facility and embraces the philosophy of offering compassionate, dignified, supportive care.
Mercy Hospice works in close coordination with the Palliative Care Program. The inpatient Palliative Care Service is the management of symptoms and pain in patients with complex or life limiting illness. Mercy’s interdisciplinary team gives an extra level of support not only to the patient, but to family members and others involved in their journey. The Palliative Care Service takes place in a home-like setting within Mercy Medical Center and provides care that is specialized for each patient.
