Hospice Care

Around the nation, our hospice and palliative teams dedicate their professional lives to helping our partner physicians treat and comfort families and patients coping with life’s most challenging circumstances.


What Is Involved With Hospice Care?

 

At LHC Group, we believe that hospice is about living, loving, and making every day count. When your patient is living with a terminal illness, quality of life matters more than ever. Our program helps patients live comfortably and with dignity when a cure is no longer possible.

Our hospice and palliative care programs can be provided in any place a patient calls home, including nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Hospice professionals deliver a broad range of services:
  • Expert medical treatment and pain management
  • Counseling and bereavement support services
  • Comfort and support to patients and families
  • Specialized care for veterans
  • Dedicated volunteers for assistance and support
