Facing the end of life can be difficult, whether you’re the patient or a loved one. Hospice of West Tennessee is here to help families facing a life-limiting illness make the most of the time that remains.

The Hospice Care That’s Needed to Enhance Quality of Life

The focus of hospice services is on improving or maintaining quality of life for patients who are near death. At Hospice of West Tennessee, a team of providers focuses on caring for patients as a whole—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The ultimate goal of hospice care is to ensure patient comfort.

Support Not Just for the Patient, But Also for the Family

Since 1986, Hospice of West Tennessee has been providing care to patients and their families regardless of the ability to pay. In most cases, hospice services are provided in the patient’s home—allowing him or her to rest in the comfort of home.

A team of professionals, including clinicians, chaplains, social workers, nurse practitioner, and a palliative-certified physician, offer care and support to both patients and their loved ones as they navigate the end of life. This includes assistance with making vitally important end-of-life decisions about care and other issues.
