Given the choice, most of us would prefer to be at home when we’re sick. This is no different with a terminal illness. However, many families fear the responsibilities of home care. Hospice lessens the practical burdens on the entire family through a coordinated system of physical, emotional and spiritual care.
Our 10 bed in-patient care facility, The Joni Fair Hospice House, features private rooms designed to be a home away from home for our patients, their families and loved ones. The house is staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and there is always a caring hospice nurse and CNA on hand to help with any need.
Relief from stress, pain and other symptoms such as fatigue, loss of appetite, and shortness of breath. You need to improve your ability to tolerate treatments. Also you and your family need to be able to carry on with everyday life. We can help you better understand your condition and choices for your care.
The mission of Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care is to enhance the quality of life and to maintain the integrity of individuals and their families facing end-of-life by offering them support, comfort, and compassion.
