Hospice In Home Care

Hospice provides supportive services to individuals and their families who are facing a life threatening illness. While hospice  provides exceptional end of life management and emotional support, they usually do not provide in-home staffing for hands-on care.

Northwest Healthcare supplements the support that hospice provides through in-home companionship, comfort, and personal care for up to 24 hours a day. Working directly with hospice and the family, coordinates the in-home services provided by our highly skilled certified nursing assistants. In addition, our staff can ease daily stresses by providing housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, and shopping, allowing family more time to spend directly with their loved one.

Bob Patton, Northwest Healthcare's CEO, has 25 plus years of healthcare experience and is committed to a palliative approach to hospice care. He believes that all care services should be coordinated as a united team to provide choice, comfort, and dignity to the person, their family and friends. Candy Hayes, Administrator, has a personal commitment to Hospice services. In her personal life she volunteers for “Friends of Hospice, Southwest” an organization that is committed to providing funds for the care of hospice patients and their families. Both of their personal experiences with family and friends in hospice have created a unique perspective to the stresses a family experiences during "end of life" transitions. They understand that each situation is different, and they tailor Northwest Healthcare services to uniquely support each individual’s circumstance.
