Hospice of the Bluegrass is a non-profit organization which provides support and care for persons in the last phase of an incurable illness. Hospice exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and families may be free to attain a degree of mental, physical and spiritual preperation for death that is satisfactory to them. Hospice care usually takes place in the home, but may may also be provided in a nursing home, hospital, and the Hospice Care Center at St. Joseph Hospital. Patients receive skilled, multidisciplinary care. The interdisciplinary team consists of the patient's doctor, a registered nurse, social worker, chaplain, bereavement counselor, home care aid and volunteers. Hospice of the Bluegrass serves 23 counties and is a member of the National Hospice Organization. Hospice of the Bluegrass is certified by medicare and medicaid as well as being licensed by the State of Kentucky.
