Central Community Hospital offers Hospice Care to provide support and care for patients and families in the final phase of terminal illness. Hospice encourages patients to live as fully and as comfortable as possible by emphasizing the quality of life. CCH contracts with Crossing Rivers Home Health and Hospice, St. Croix Hospice and Palmer Home Health and Hospice.
Home care: Family is supported by one of the contracted Hospice teams to care for their loved one at home. Regular visits are made by staff to assure patient and family.
Inpatient care: If the need arises for more intense care and/or symptom control, the patient may be admitted to CCH.
Respite Care: This type of care is available to offer caregiver’s relief. The patient is admitted to CCH and Medicare/Medicaid covers up to five days with hospice approval.
