Special Care by Special People
Hospice is a special type of care for people who are facing serious illness and who have a limited life expectancy. Hospice patients can receive services in the environment they choose. The hospice team can provide In-Home Hospice Services in a patient's own home, the home of a family member, a nursing home, senior apartments or assisted living facility.
Home Health United - Hospice also staffs and operates the St. Clare Hospice House, a four-bed facility in Baraboo, providing Residential Hospice Services for patients who for whatever reason are unable to remain at home.
Our service area covers communities in 19 counties in southern Wisconsin including Columbia, Dane, Richland, Rock, Sauk, and portions of Adams, Crawford, Dodge, Grant, Green, Green Lake, Iowa, Jefferson, Juneau, Lafayette, Marquette, Monroe, Vernon, and Walworth.
The HHU - Hospice team works closely with patients and families to identify their goals and priorities, and to develop a plan to achieve them. Hospice providers are experts in managing symptoms such as pain, breathing difficulty and anxiety. They are also skilled in providing emotional support to patients and families as death is approaching. HHU - Hospice staff is dedicated to helping individuals facing terminal illness to experience the best quality of life possible. Learn More - Frequently Asked Questions About Hospice.
