About UPMC Somerset In Touch Hospice

Location:

1474 N. Center Ave., Somerset, PA 15501, US

Mission Statement

UPMC Somerset's In Touch Hospice is a non-profit organization committed to high quality end-of-life care for our community. We have served Somerset County and the surrounding area since 1983. Our clients make their own health care decisions based on their specific personal and family needs. Hospice focuses on achieving an end-of-life characterized by grace, dignity, comfort, or peace of mind. Inherent in hospice care is the ongoing learning about care giving, the disease process, and the options and interventions needed to relieve pain and other discomforts.

Description

What is hospice?
When medical care cannot offer a cure, hospice provides care, comfort, and support for persons with terminal conditions as well as their families. The hospice team works to make the person comfortable and relieve the symptoms and pain of their illness.
Why choose UPMC Somerset's In Touch Hospice?
Hospice care is a family-centered team approach that includes a doctor, nurse, social worker, counselor, chaplain, hospice aide, and trained volunteers. They work together focusing on the dying person's needs - physical, emotional, social, and spiritual. The goal is to help keep the person as pain and symptom-free as possible while offering spiritual and supportive counseling to the patient and family members. In Touch Hospice offers patients and their family the option for short term use in our inpatient hospice facility or have care in the privacy of their own home. As a registered not-for-profit hospice provider, we believe our primary role is to care for the community, one family at a time.
