Mission Statement

To help patients remain at home and in their own communities, surrounded by friends and family, while receiving the highest-quality, most compassionate home-based care possible.

Description

Hospice is a philosophy of care, not a place. The word hospice comes from the word "hospitality". The concept of hospice has been evolving since the 11th century. The original hospices were places of hospitality for the sick, wounded, or dying or for those traveling and seeking shelter.

Today’s hospice is a special type of care that is offered to people who have a life-limiting illness. It is for those who have reached a point in their lives when the goals of care become comfort focused. They seek to relieve pain and other symptoms and to prevent suffering. They understand that a cure for their illness is no longer a reality, or they have chosen to no longer seek aggressive treatment.

Kindred at Home is proud to offer in home hospice care to patients and their families throughout the US. Hospice is provided in the home, wherever you call home. This can be in your own home, assisted living, skilled nursing facility, or other setting. Most people want to spend the end of their life in the comfort of their home, surrounded by their loved ones and the things that have meaning for them.
