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:

  • Pain management
  • Specially trained nursing staff and social workers
  • Treatments and services that address comfort and quality of life
  • Family support services
  • Spiritual care
  • And much more.

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.
