HOSPICE CARE IN A NURSING HOME

How To Get An Added Layer Of Support For Your Loved One


Most patients receive hospice care in a private home. Yet did you know that UpliftedCare also provides care to those living in a nursing home, hospital or assisted living?

If your loved one is residing in a nursing facility, UpliftedCare can provide an extra layer of support, comfort and expert care. We partner with local nursing facilities to compliment the care they provide while bringing additional expert care that can improve the quality of life for those with advanced illness.

UpliftedCare’s team includes our hospice physician, nurses, certified nursing assistants (CNAs), social workers, counselors, specialized therapists, volunteers and chaplains who work beside the nursing facility staff to create and implement individualized plans of care based on your loved one’s unique needs. Our CNAs also provide additional personal care to complement CNA services in the nursing facility.

One of the real benefits of our care is our expertise in end of life care that can help manage symptoms, control pain, reduce stress and enhance comfort. We offer specialized care when it is needed most.
