Hospice of Holland provides end-of-life care for people of all ages. Patients become eligible for hospice care when they choose care focused on comfort rather than cure, and when the physician estimates the person’s life expectancy to be months rather than years. Through physical, emotional and spiritual care, we help patients feel comfortable, enhance their quality of life, and provide support when it’s needed most.
Additional Care Provided at Hospice House:
General Inpatient (GIP) Benefit General inpatient care is offered at our Hospice House or in an area hospital. It is a temporary level of care determined by the physician and it provides 24-hour care from skilled registered nurses focusing on managing a patient’s symptoms that can not be controlled at home. Once symptoms are controlled, the patient may choose to return home, to a facility or to reside at the Hospice House.
