The Hospice Room at Cottage Hospital

The Hospice Room at Cottage Hospital was a product of the dedication of the nurses, physicians and community members who want the dying patient and their family to have a serene atmosphere.

Though we do not have all the services a home health hospice program provides we do have a compassionate staff and we specialize in pain relief.

The services we offer a hospice patient are: Registered nurse expertise, pain consult by our Certified Nurse Anesthetists, Licensed Nursing Assistants to assist in bathing the patient and meeting the basic needs of the patient and consults by a certified social worker.

Hospice care is provided to patients who have a limited life expectancy. Although most hospice patients are cancer patients, hospices accept anyone regardless of age or type of illness. These patients have also made a decision to spend their last months at a home or in a homelike setting.

Those involved in the process of dying have a variety of physical, spiritual, emotional, and social needs. The nature of dying is so unique that the goal of the hospice team is to be sensitive and responsive to the special requirements of each individual and family.

Please contact the hospital for more information regarding this service at (603) 747-9348.
