Hospice Care in Eastern Nebraska
Our Specialized Hospice Care Services and Programs near Omaha
Hillcrest Hospice Care offers individuals and their families comfort at home or at a care facility during the end-of-life journey. Hospice care providers supplement the services offered by primary care professionals once curative treatments have ceased, by effectively managing pain and other symptoms for your loved one in order to increase their comfort and quality of life.
Hillcrest Hospice Care goes above and beyond traditional hospice care services, enhancing the lives of patients and their families. We offer specialized therapies to meet individual needs, such as pet therapy, music therapy and massage therapy. Spiritual care is also provided to patients and their families by chaplains and bereavement counselors through Grief Workshops, and families may continue to receive this support up to a year after their loved one passes. Our compassionate care team not only ensures the comfort of your loved one, but for yourself and other family members, too.
Since patients with a terminal diagnosis of six months or less are eligible for hospice, patients and families are encouraged to contact hospice as early as possible in order to create a plan for personal goal achievement, physical and emotional support, and the maximum level of comfort to ensure the very best quality of life possible.
Even if a patient may not be ready for hospice services, we encourage you to call and discuss options such as palliative care, which can manage the painful symptoms of a disease even when a patient is continuing curative treatments. Palliative care can bridge the gap and help prepare a patient for an eventual transition to hospice care.
There is no obligation when calling for a complimentary hospice consultation. Many families who use our services tell us they wish they had called sooner. Our service area includes 7 counties in eastern Nebraska: Dodge, Washington, Saunders, Douglas, Sarpy, Cass and Otoe counties.
