Transitions LifeCare – Hospice Home

When general inpatient care is needed

 

General Overview

At Transitions HospiceCare we strive to help patients and families remain in their homes, assisted living communities or nursing homes. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons it is not always possible for patients to continue their hospice care at home. The William M. Dunlap Center for Caring (Hospice Home) offers two levels of care: general inpatient care, and short-stay residential care.

You know, hospice is a really scary word and we were afraid to bring my mother [to the Hospice Home] at first, but I am truly an advocate of it now. It really gave us time to adjust. It was so serene and warm there. She was much more relaxed when she was there than when she was at the hospital. It really was a good experience.”
