What is the Hospice House?

Hospice House residents receive the same compassionate, expert care as our home hospice patients, but in the comfortable, elegant surroundings of one of Charlottesville’s most beautiful homes.

A licensed nurse is on duty at all times, providing a better ratio of patient care than is found in most skilled nursing homes. Patients also receive pain management, advanced illness management, comfort care, and spiritual and emotional support from nurses, nursing assistants, medication aides, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers.

Who is cared for at the Hospice House?

Hospice House offers around-the-clock, compassionate care to patients who no longer have a caregiver or whose loved ones are unable to provide care at home during the final part of their journey. For example, if a patient lives alone and their family lives far away, it may not be safe or practical for them to continue living at home. In such a situation, a hospice care center like Hospice House may be a good option.
