When life expectancy is limited, Fairview and HealthEast 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 or HealthEast patient to become a hospice patient.
Fairview Hospice serves 15 counties, covering the Twin Cities, Princeton and the surrounding areas.
HealthEast Hospice serves the 7-county metro area.
Fairview Range serves the Iron Range and Northeast Minnesota.
