Overview of Hospice

Watch the video of the Hunt family and their experience with Hospice of Visiting Nurse ServiceHospice is a unique program for terminally ill patients and their families. The focus of Hospice is to help the patient and family with end of life decision-making, meeting life's goals, enhancing family relationships, and promoting comfort. Hospice care is provided by a specially-trained team of caring health professionals and volunteers who strive to keep patients and their families comfortable, at peace, and in control of their lives during a changing time.  

Hospice cares for patients wherever they live. Although home is the primary setting, care can be provided to patients in retirement communities, independent and assisted living residences, nursing facilities and other settings. Hospice services are also available at the Justin T. Rogers Care Center. The goal at the Care Center is to provide compassionate hospice services in a home-like setting for patients needing acute inpatient care or respite care.

Hospice services are covered in full or in part by Medicare, Medicaid, and most major medical insurance companies and managed care organizations.

Hospice of VNS serves Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne Counties.
