Description

At Odyssey HealthCare, we improve the quality of life for patients facing terminal diagnoses and provide support for their loved ones.

Our teams of caregivers consist of registered nurses, physicians, home healthcare aides, social workers, chaplains, bereavement counselors and trained volunteers. They provide what is called palliative care to the patient, that is, care that helps ease pain and discomforting symptoms. In addition, they provide psycho-social and spiritual support for both patients and their loved ones. Patients typically receive our services in their own homes or in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. But we also serve patients in hospitals or, in certain geographic locations, in Odyssey's own freestanding hospice facilities.
