Hospice and Palliative Care
Crossing Rivers Hospice provides support and peace at the end of life’s journey, creating a caring environment where family and friends can say goodbye. Specially trained registered nurses are available 24/7.
Hospice is provided in a variety of settings including private homes, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and for short-term purposes, at area hospitals.
Bereavement support continues for families for up to 13 months after the passing of their loved one.
Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious or chronic illness. The focus in palliative care is the anticipation, prevention, and treatment of the symptoms and stressors of illness - whatever the diagnosis. It does not replace your primary care. Palliative care works as an extra layer of support to the treatments you're already receiving. The goal is to help both patient and family experience and improved quality of life.
