Mission Statement

Hospice of the Piedmont is an organized, not-for-profit program that, upon informed choice, provides palliative care and supportive services to patients, their families and significant others in both home and facility-based settings. Physical, social, spiritual and emotional care is provided during the last stages of illness, during the dying process and during bereavement by a medically directed interdisciplinary team. Hospice of the Piedmont serves patients from portions of four counties: Guilford, Forsyth, Randolph and Davidson.

Description

Hospice of the Piedmont is a not-for-profit provider of palliative (comfort) care and support services for patients, their families and caregivers, mainly in the home, but also in nursing facilities, hospitals, and our own Hospice Home at High Point. Patients ranging in age from infants to the elderly who are facing a life-limiting illness are given specialized medical, emotional, and spiritual care through our programs. In addition, we provide grief support to families and others in the community who have experienced a loss.

Hospice offers a continuum of care through five programs: Hospice and Palliative Care , Care Connection Home Health , Kids Path , Hospice Home at High Point and the Grief Counseling Center .
Hospice of the Piedmont serves portions of Guilford, Forsyth, Randolph, and Davidson counties from our High Point office. Since its founding in 1981, thousands of patients have been cared for by our team of professionals and volunteers, and we have earned an outstanding reputation for professional expertise in end of life care.

Hospice of the Piedmont is licensed by Medicare and Medicaid, and is a covered benefit by most private insurance carriers. Services offered by Hospice of the Piedmont are provided regardless of diagnosis, age, race, religion, or ability to pay. In addition, the agency is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care, and is a member of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, the Carolinas Center for End of Life Care, and the United Way of Greater High Point.
