Chandler Hall’s Hospice Services Will Be There With You Through the Journey

Hospice is a philosophy of care for people of all ages in the last stages of a terminal illness. Chandler Hall began one of the area’s first and most comprehensive hospice programs in 1982. We provide holistic, personalized care to patients through our Hospice Program wherever “home” is for your loved one. Common terminal diseases may include cancer, end-stage cardiac disease, chronic pulmonary disease (COPD), Alzheimer’s disease, and neurological disorders. You will receive an interdisciplinary support team to help guide you through this difficult time. Medicare and most insurance cover the cost of Hospice Services.

Hospice does not hasten death. It supports end of life and recognizes dying as a normal process. The Hospice Program is designed for patients with a prognosis of less than six months. They are no longer receiving curative treatment as the goals of care have shifted to comfort and quality of life. Whenever possible, hospice patients stay in the familiar surroundings of their own homes, Hospice services may be provuded in a nursing or residential setting.
