Hospice is an empowering choice that provides comfort care for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones who are experiencing the challenges of a life-limiting illness.
Under the direction of a physician, the caring experts of VNA Hospice listen closely to the wishes of the patient and their family to develop a plan for controlling and alleviating pain, promoting comfort, preserving dignity and optimizing quality of life.
Most patients in the care of VNA Hospice are able to remain comfortably in the place they call home –whether a private residence, assisted living facility, nursing home or hospital. However, for times when a patient is experiencing distressing symptoms, the state-of-the-art VNA Inpatient Hospice in Butler offers 24-hour observation, symptom management and skilled nursing care in an inviting, homelike environment.
