Hospice Care When — and Where — Your Patients Need It

The Patient's Home
Hospice services can be provided in a patient’s residence, whether they live by themselves, with a spouse or significant other, or another member of their family. The Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice team provides physical, emotional and spiritual care, and supports their primary caregiver and family members as well.

Assisted Living Facility
If a patient lives in assisted living, the facility provides custodial care — such as help with activities of daily living — while the hospice team is responsible for the professional management and support related to the client’s care needs. Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice can provide hospice care in any assisted living facility within our service area.

Skilled Nursing Facility
Most skilled nursing facilities contract with hospice providers to determine up front which services will be provided by whom, and how they will communicate to make sure the patient’s needs are met 24 hours a day. Typically, the facility retains responsibility for the patient’s custodial needs, and Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice manages hospice services according to the patient’s plan of care.

  •  A full range of services provided by one of our nurse practitioners, based on your patient’s needs and requests.
  • Family meetings to discuss goals of care and to make treatment choices.
  • A personalized treatment plan with goals specific to your patients’ needs, concerns, symptom management and relief from suffering.
