Hospice care is a way of living with dignity, hope and support during advanced or life-threatening illness. Hospice Care in Westchester & Putnam focuses on the medical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the individual and their family through the assistance and care of nurses, social workers, other professionals and trained volunteers.
Hospice enables patients to remain at home with quality of life and physical comfort. We coordinate all services including hospital care, if needed, so that continuity of care is maintained 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We provide palliative care, the expert treatment of pain and other symptoms. We also enhance our core hospice services with a broad-based Healing Arts Program that promotes pain management, relaxation and improved quality of life with holistic therapies including therapeutic massage, shiatsu massage, art, music and pet therapies, among others.
Hospice is for the family, too, with special services for adults, teens and children to support them in managing stress and coping with their loved one's illness.
Hospice Care in Westchester & Putnam is JCAHO accredited, fully licensed and certified. We are the only hospice provider in Putnam County, and the largest not-for-profit organization providing hospice services in the area.
