In-Home Care

At High Desert Hospice, we believe in the sanctity of comfort, the importance of dignity, and the value of spending your final days surrounded by the warmth of home. Our In-Home Hospice Care program is designed to support patients who wish to remain in the familiar and loving environment of their own homes while receiving the highest quality end-of-life care.

Personalized Care in the Comfort of Your Home

In-home care is at the heart of what we do. We understand that most people would prefer to be in their own home among family, personal memories, and the comforts of familiarity when facing life-limiting illnesses. That’s why our dedicated team works closely with each patient and their family to provide a customized care plan that addresses medical needs, emotional support, and spiritual care tailored to each individual’s personal wishes and clinical requirements.

A Comprehensive Approach to Care

Our holistic approach ensures that our patients receive comprehensive care that encompasses not just medical and physical needs but also the emotional and spiritual dimensions of well-being. Our team of skilled hospice professionals includes physicians, nurses, social workers, spiritual counselors, and trained volunteers who work together to deliver compassionate care and support, right in the patient’s home.

Symptom Management and Comfort

One of the pillars of our in-home care is effective symptom management. Our goal is to alleviate pain and other symptoms so that patients can live as comfortably as possible. Our team is trained in the latest palliative care techniques and work tirelessly to ensure that discomfort is minimized, allowing patients to focus on enjoying time with loved ones.

Support for Families and Caregivers

We know that end-of-life care is a family journey. High Desert Hospice extends its support to include not just the patient but also the caregivers and family members. Our services include respite care to give family caregivers the rest they need, counseling to help process the complex emotions that come with a loved one’s illness, and bereavement support to assist after a patient’s passing.

Coordination with Other Services

We seamlessly coordinate with other necessary medical services such as home health aides, medical equipment providers, and pharmacies to ensure that our patients have everything they need. Our team works as a liaison to streamline these services, alleviating the burden on families so they can focus on what’s most important – being with their loved one.

Education and Resources

Understanding the hospice process and what to expect can ease some of the uncertainty that comes with this life stage. High Desert Hospice provides patients and families with educational materials and resources to guide them through the intricacies of in-home care, ensuring they feel empowered and informed.

Our Commitment

At High Desert Hospice, we are committed to honoring the wishes of our patients by providing compassionate, dignified in-home care. Our aim is to enhance the quality of remaining life, allowing patients to live each day fully, with the people they love, in the place they call home.
