Hospice of Davidson County About Us Slider

About Hospice

Since 1985, Hospice of Davidson County has been providing a team approach to expert medical care, pain management and emotional and spiritual support following a terminal diagnosis from illness or injury.

Our highest priority is helping our patients and their families find comfort, guidance, and peace through experienced hospice care professionals.

We serve residents with hospice care in the greater Davidson County community, from Lexington, Thomasville, Welcome, Midway, Arcadia, and other surrounding counties, including Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph, and Rowan.

Hospice Care is provided in a patient’s home, in long-term care facilities, and at the Davidson County’s first inpatient Hospice Care unit – The Henry Etta & Bruce Hinkle Hospice House located off of Highway 64 East in Davidson County.

Hospice team members make regular visits to provide care or services, as well as assisting a family’s needs. The frequency and type of visits provided are individualized and based on the patient and family’s needs and wants.

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is a specialized type of health care that is delivered by our own physicians, nurses, Hospice aides and social workers. Many patients and families also choose to include additional team members such as a spiritual counselor, grief counselor, and a volunteer.
