Hospice

When life expectancy is limited, Fairview Hospice staff and volunteers will help you and your family focus on improving the quality of your remaining days. Hospice provides medical, emotional, social and spiritual care. We bring these services to the familiar setting of your own home whenever possible. The same kind of care may also be given at a long-term care site, a group home, an assisted living site or a residential hospice.

When is the right time to ask about hospice?

Hospice services are usually provided when life is expected to be less than six months, but it’s never too early to ask questions. An individual doesn’t have to currently be a Fairview patient to become a Fairview Hospice patient.

Services we provide

  • Assistance with bathing and personal care
  • Bereavement support for your loved ones
  • Counseling from social workers
  • Medications, medical supplies and equipment related to your diagnosis
  • Pain and symptom management
  • Phone consultations
  • Visits from spiritual care providers who respect your family’s faith and beliefs
