Hospice in Residential Facilities

  • "Our family would like to thank everyone involved in my husband's care. You helped us to fulfill his final wish and make his final journey from home. You are all amazing and special; you took great care of him as well as his family."

  • "Your caring staff is so valuable to families during critical times. Your support is very comforting and appreciated. We are truly grateful."

  • "We were blessed with the loving care you gave our Dad. The nurse was great and treated him like he was part of her family. We are forever grateful for all of you. Thank you."

  • "To the Hospice folks, words cannot express our thanks and appreciation for your tender touch and loving professionalism during our Dad's illness. We will always remember our nurse's expert skills and abilities as well as her personal touch. "

  • "We want to thank everyone who cared for our Mother. Everyone was so nice and caring and went over and beyond what we could have hoped for. Thank you all."

If you or a loved one live in a nursing home or other residential facility, the CareFirst Hospice Team can bring specialized medical care directly to you, to supplement the care already available.

Our services include:

  • 24 hour on-call service, bringing care to the facility at times of crisis and preventing unwanted hospital stays
  • Nurse case managers
  • Personal care nurses
  • Social workers
  • Spiritual care counselors
  • Volunteers
  • Grief counselors
  • Physicians available to consult

CareFirst works with the residential facility to bring a team approach to care. As with hospice care provided directly in your own home, you and your doctor remain in control of your care at all times. CareFirst Hospice partners with facility staff to focus on keeping you comfortable and out of the hospital.

The CareFirst Hospice Team provides medical care aimed at controlling symptoms and promoting comfort. This additional level of support is known as palliative care.

We might be biased, yet we think our team of doctors, nurses, social workers, spiritual care coordinators, volunteers, and administration are pretty special!
