Hospice

Hospice is rooted in the centuries-old idea of offering hospitality to those on a long journey. It is about living life as fully as possible because each of us matters to the last moment of our lives. That was the essence of Dame Cicely Saunders beliefs as she founded modern hospice care.

The focus of hospice is on the improvement of the quality of life. Hospice services support you in giving those you love the best you can offer in end-of life care. Hospice recognizes death as the final stage of life. We enable hospice patients to live their final days to the fullest surrounded by their loved ones.

To make an informed decision about hospice care, you need to learn as much as you can about what services are available to you under Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance. 

Horizon Hospice provides comprehensive and practical end-of-life care that supports both the patient and the family. Our emphasis is on protecting the dignity of the patient while offering the best comfort care available. We offer a holistic approach in the services we provide.

Home Health

  At Horizon, we understand that most people prefer to stay in their own home, especially when recovering from an injury or illness. When you are at home, you can retain your sense of independence and dignity, while being in a comfortable, familiar environment, which often times can actually speed the recovery process.  Home Healthcare is delivered in the Patient’s home, or home setting, such as assisted living, or retirement community. When a Physician orders Home Health, our team delivers a broad range of skilled services that may include;
