The focus of Hospice Care is to alleviate symptoms, promote comfort, and improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family members involved in end-of-life care. Through Community Education, our goal is to help inform people about our service offering.
Hospice isn’t a place – It is a specialized type of care. Hospice of Davidson County provides this specialized care in a variety of settings including private homes, long- term care facilities and at the county’s only inpatient hospice program – The Henry Etta & Bruce Hinkle Hospice House.
When curative treatments are no longer an option, or when the patient no longer wishes to continue treatment, Hospice Care can bring comfort and peace.
