It's Time For Hospice When...
“I used to think hospice was about quitting and giving up, and now I realize it’s about hope.”
- A patient’s wife
Hospice of the Piedmont celebrates quality–not quantity–of life.
Our experienced medical and support teams help terminally ill patients manage their pain and symptoms, focusing on compassionate comfort instead of cure. Our patients are people like you who have only weeks or months to live, with illnesses such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, end-stage kidney disease, end-stage liver disease, HIV/AIDS, ALS and other end-stage neurodegenerative diseases, and end-stage heart and lung disease.
While not every patient qualifies for hospice care, please call us today to discuss potential eligibility with a skilled hospice admission nurse. We’ll answer any questions you may have.
We are dedicated to getting patients who need us into hospice care sooner, so you can be comfortable and enjoy as much meaningful time with your loved ones as possible. Most patients and families receive hospice only in the last week of life, when actually they could receive our warm and compassionate comfort care for many weeks, months, or longer. And we are there for your loved ones too, giving everyone on your journey a safe and caring place to grieve, thanks to our high-quality, ongoing grief support programs.
Best of all, our hospice and grief support services are available to patients and their families, regardless of their ability to pay.
Is it time for hospice? Let us help.
