For residents of a nursing home or other facility, hospice is the opportunity to receive an extra level of care, from expert professionals.
Hospice care provides expertise in the area of pain control and symptom management, complementing the care offered by the safe and caring environment of the nursing home or other residential facility.
Hudson Valley Hospice partners with your nursing home and works alongside your attending physician to provide the following services:
Our plan of care reflects our philosophy and mission. We are dedicated to helping individuals who are near the end of life maintain their dignity and enhance the quality of their life.
Studies show that patients who are referred to hospice care as early as possible experience a far superior quality of life, with fewer hospitalizations and a decrease in symptoms.
Referrals for hospice care can come from you, your loved ones, your physician, or your nursing home staff. Medicare-certified hospices require physicians to certify that a patient's prognosis is expected to be six months or less.

When a patient reaches the end stages of an illness or disease, hospice offers palliative care to help control pain and reduce anxiety. We improve quality of life and time spent with loved ones.
Emotional and Spiritual Support
Hospice care provides emotional and spiritual support to patients and families, including grief and bereavement resources. You and your loved ones don’t have to face these challenges alone.
Medical Care Management
Hospice manages medical care, in-home visits from care providers, acquiring medical supplies, and end-of-life planning.
Respect for the Patient and Family Wishes
Hospice strives to provide the highest quality end-of-life care so that our patients may live with comfort and dignity. Every family is on a different journey, and we acknowledge and respect your decisions and plans. Our goal is to make this difficult time as easy as possible.
We improve quality of life by relieving patients and their loved ones of much of the stress that comes with providing end-of-life care. Families can focus on being together and sharing memories.
