Hospice Care

When you choose Genesis Hospice, you choose to live your life with quality, comfort, compassionate support and dignity.

Who Qualifies for Hospice Care

You or a loved one may be eligible for hospice care during the end stages of a life-limiting illness such as:

  • AIDS
  • ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic respiratory illness
  • Heart failure
  • Liver or kidney failure
  • Parkinson’s disease

Care When & Where You Need It

Receive hospice care anywhere you call home, including a family member’s house, a nursing home or an assisted living residence. The hospice team will visit regularly and a hospice nurse is available 24/7 to answer questions or assist with medical concerns.

If you need more care than can be provided at home, ask about staying at the Morrison House.

You may receive hospice care for an unlimited amount of time, depending on the course of the illness. If you believe hospice is a good option now, but change your mind later, you may stop receiving hospice services at any time. Resuming hospice care is as easy as a phone call to our office.

Grief support services are available to friends and family at any time. Find a grief support group or learn about Genesis Spiritual Care.
