AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT COVID-19
Hospicare is open to serve! Our Residence is accepting patients and our clinical staff is performing BOTH home visits and telemedicine as appropriate.
Due to COVID, visitation to the Residence is permitted 24-hours a day, but is limited to two visitors at a time per patient. Each visitor is limited to one two-hour visit per day and must remain in the patient’s room at all times. All visitors are screened before entry and will be provided PPE (personal protective equipment) to be worn while in the building. There may be additional visitor precautions taken during Hospicare’s 10-day observation period for new Residence patients. If you have questions, please call us at 607-272-0212 during business hours (M-F, 8:30am-4:30pm).
Our mission is to bring medical expertise and compassionate, respectful care to people and their loved ones at any stage of a life-threatening illness, and to provide information and education about advanced illness, dying, and bereavement to the entire community.
Hospice is a medical specialty that allows you and your family to focus on quality of life. We care for people in our community who are dying by providing physical, emotional and spiritual comfort.
Our interdisciplinary team provides support and comfort in the last six months of life by taking into consideration medical, emotional and spiritual needs so you can more fully enjoy time with loved ones.
Support groups, workshops, community memorials, and private counseling sessions are available to anyone in our service area who is grieving the death of a loved one, whether or not they died on hospice.
