When to access hospice care

Throughout November, Campbell County Health has celebrated National Hospice Month by honoring the nurses, CNA’s, therapists, and social workers who make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve, as well as remembering those who have passed away with the Service of Memory and Hope or Memorial Blooms programs.

For those who don't know, CCH offers hospice care for anyone diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. Individuals who have received hospice care often comment that the wished they would have accessed hospice services sooner. In fact, many patients continue to live with a great quality of life while receiving hospice care. Check out this quick video featuring Ashley Fraser, RN, CCH Home Health and Hospice Director, for more information.

Hospice care addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient through comfort care, symptom and pain management and other life-limiting or terminal illnesses. This care can be provided in many places including the patient’s home, Close to Home Hospice Hospitality House, and The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center.
