Hospice and Respite Care

Let us join you on this journey.
Caring for a dying loved one isn’t easy. Even when you know the end of life is approaching, you might not feel prepared. Understanding what to expect — and what you can do to increase your loved one’s comfort — can help.

Abbyshire Place Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center provides compassionate end-of-life care for patients and families dealing life-limiting illnesses. Abbyshire Place offers a holistic treatment approach provided by a team of health care professionals who maximize comfort for a terminally ill person by reducing pain and addressing physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. To help families, hospice care also provides counseling, respite care and practical support. We believe that each of us deserves to experience our last days surrounded by loving family and friends. At the end of our lives, we should feel cherished and well tended to by skilled and caring medical professionals who ease our suffering during our final journey.

Unlike other medical care, the focus of hospice care isn’t to cure the underlying disease. The goal of hospice care is to support the highest quality of life possible for whatever time remains.
