General Inpatient Care
When symptoms can not be managed in the home, a patient may utilize our inpatient hospice unit at The Hope House, which offers around the clock skilled nursing care. Our hospice physician and nurse case manager will determine the need for the services.
When a caregiver requires a brief break from the caregiving role, a respite stay may be available in our inpatient facility depending on availability.
If uncontrolled pain or symptoms emerge for a patient, crisis management may be provided within the home by skilled staff as determined by the interdisciplinary team.
What is Hospice Care?
Eternal Hope provides hospice care to anyone who has been
faced with a life-limiting disease. Hospice care is usually implemented when a terminal
diagnosis is given with a life expectancy of 6 months if the disease follows
its normal course.
When is it time for Hospice Care?
Hospice is recommended to anyone who’s life-limiting illness

believe in offering hope and bringing quality care to our
patients and families.
