When someone you love is coming to the end of their journey, making them comfortable is what matters most. Because patients often prefer to stay at home, managing their symptoms requires medical assistance. Here at St. Margaret's Hospice, we offer palliative care and pain management services for people in the last stages of advanced illness. Our holistic approach also provides emotional and spiritual support for patients and their families.
What We Do
Depending on the level of care your loved one needs, we may recommend either routine or continuous care. The former involves regular home visits from a medical director or skilled nurse whose objective is to alleviate and control the symptoms of the illness. As its name suggests, the latter involves continuous, round-the-clock care provided by a nurse who will stay at the patient's home. Because symptoms and conditions may change, our team may alter care plans to provide additional services, as needed.
