You should have the best care possible—in the hospital and out. To help bring home health and hospice services to more patients and families, Wentworth-Douglass Hospital partnered with Amedisys to offer comprehensive at-home nursing, therapy and hospice services through Wentworth Homecare and Hospice. In 2013, Wentworth Homecare and Hospice was recognized as one of the top 100 Care Centers in the nation by HomeCare Elite.
Home health costs are generally covered by Medicare and many private insurance plans when you meet certain eligibility requirements. You have options for home health or hospice providers and may ask your doctor to refer you to any provider you choose.
Hospice is a compassionate form of health care that provides non-curative treatment and comfort to people with a life expectancy of six months or less, according to a physician’s judgment. It is centered on caring for the whole person – with expert medical care, pain management as well as emotional and spiritual support for you – along with resources, information and emotional support for your family.
This compassionate care is about providing comfort, dignity, and quality of life. Wentworth Hospice goes to great lengths to help patients and their loved ones live each day to its fullest. The Wentworth Hospice team understands that as you approach the end of life, every moment matters.
This expert care is provided in the comfort of your own home – wherever you call home. The Wentworth Hospice team of physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, bereavement counselors and volunteers work together to meet your unique needs. They meet you where you are – seeking to learn what matters most to you at this stage of your illness – so they can deliver the best possible care for you.
