Hospice Houses

A hospice house is a peaceful home-like residence where terminally ill people receive short term hospice care. Each patient will have a comfortable, private bedroom so their loved ones can remain at the bedside around the clock when time is precious.

Most people prefer to receive care in their own home, but that is not always possible. Hospice Houses are a good alternative and provide a skilled level of care for adults and children with advancing illness who may benefit from pain and symptom management that cannot be met in other settings. Most people find hospice houses to be family friendly and spiritually pleasing. New Hampshire is fortunate to have a number of hospice homes operated by licensed Medicare Certified Hospice providers. To learn if this option might be right for you or a loved one, talk with your physician and feel free to contact them for more information.

Our Community Hospice House

At Home Health & Hospice Care, we are dedicated to helping people in our community find a peaceful and dignified end to their life’s journey. The Community Hospice House was lovingly built to care for patients at end of life who were, for a variety of reasons, just not able to be cared for at home. Our state of the art facility is warm and inviting, features comfortable, private living spaces and is staffed by an interdisciplinary team of compassionate healthcare professionals. Providing a warm, home-like environment, the Community Hospice House was designed as a place for family to gather, for loved ones to reconnect, for music to be played, and for all to enjoy the extensive gardens that surround the property. This is a place where time slows and hands are held, where memories become vivid and stories are shared. Both young and old alike have lived their final days at the Community Hospice House, surrounded by family and friends. The length of stay is highly individual, ranging from days to months. We are honored to provide individuals of all ages a place where they can find comfort and peace as they approach the end of their lives.
