Compassion, Peace and Dignity
Regional Hospice works with patients and families to manage symptoms and pain to allow the patients a better quality of life. During this end-of-life care, we support both the patient and their families with pain and symptom management that increases quality of life.
Comfort Versus Curative
Patients who have a terminal illness with a prognosis of 6 months or less and families of children who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness may want to consider our hospice care. Our focus with hospice is on the holistic health of the individual in their remaining time. We work to relieve pain and stress while managing symptoms.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Physicians can certainly refer patients in their care. However, anyone, including friends, family, clergy, and home healthcare agencies can refer someone to hospice. If your loved one is located in Washington and needs our services, you can find an online referral form on our site.
Hospice is Affordable
Most private health insurances, Medicaid, and Medicare cover our hospice care.
Whether in a Washington area home, assisted living residence, or skilled nursing facility, our caring hospice staff will come to you.
