Hospice Care Facing a serious illness is never easy.
Hospice care is for individuals who have reached the later stages of their disease.
Hospice care can be offered at:
- One’s home,
- A skilled nursing facility, or
- Inpatient hospice facility.
Regardless of the location, we engage a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and therapists to develop an individualized care plan best suited to the patient’s needs. We provide the physical, emotional and spiritual care needed to help individuals make the most of life’s remaining moments.
At Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph, we are dedicated to the belief that everyone has the right to die pain-free, with dignity and with the support of loved ones.
Studies have shown that patients who receive hospice care generally live 25% longer and more comfortably than those who do not.
Hospice Care at Home
For many people, keeping patients comfortable and free of pain is best achieved at home. The ability to make the decision to receive in-home care is a gift to patients and their families. Patients of all ages, with any life-limiting illness, may benefit from in-home services to make the most of each remaining day.Learn More
Hospice Care in Nursing Facilities
Individuals residing in skilled nursing facilities, continuing care retirement centers or assisted living facilities can receive hospice care without leaving the facility, comforting patients and their families. Patients of all ages, with any life-limiting illness, in any of these types of homes or facilities can benefit.Learn More
Inpatient Hospice Care
For patients needing medical supervision or more intensive services, we have two inpatient facilities that provide exceptional end-of-life care in comfortable, home-like environments. Our 18-bed Hospice Home at High Point and 16-bed Randolph Hospice House are a complement to the other services offered by Hospice of the Piedmont and Hospice of Randolph.Learn More
Your entire team was amazing. They are very professional in their work but also have big hearts and it comes through in how they do their work and in their positive attitudes.
Thank you for making your home like her home, warm and comfortable.
Your kindness and efforts go far beyond the patients and extend to their families and friends.
Everyone who cared for my wife was, without exception, caring, kind, and exceptionally capable individuals who seemed to truly care about her well-being and care.
Your staff (at Hospice Home) was confident, thoughtful, kind and very loving to my mom. When we couldn’t be there or take care of her needs, you took care of her.
My mother spent her last days in your facility. I want to thank you for the gifts you gave to her and our family. The dignity, caring, professionalism, and kindness will remain a bright part of our saying goodbye to our mother.
My family and I would not have made it without Hospice.
For many veterans, military service is the most important thing that they have done in their lives.” As part of We Honor Veterans, those patients are now paired with a volunteer who also served in the military and share a common bond.
Thank you for all of your care, concern, education and kindness during Mom’s last year. My grief journey has had a lighter backpack because of Hospice.
Their touch, their time, their words were the comfort of a lifetime.
We were privileged to have the support of (Hospice)…They nurtured and cared for my husband as if he was their only patient.
Me consuela saber que mi esposa tuvo los mejores cuidados gracias a Hospice. La ayudaron a ella y a nuestra familia en todas las maneras posibles.
I thank God for putting good people in the right job for people like me.
We were so impressed by your staff and your desire to help us. No one wants to need Hospice, but when a person does, it is a tremendous blessing. Thanks again for the care you gave my dad, and ultimately all of us.
I would like to say that you have a beautiful Hospice Home. It is so nice and serene. I love the “quiet spots” that you can go to and meditate. Thank you so much in helping make my mother’s last days on this earth a little better and comforting.
