One of the most basic issues for end of life care is determining where your unique needs will best be met. Hospice of Southern Kentucky’s Hospice House replicates the comforts of home while providing 24/7 skilled care to keep patients and families comfortable.
Hospice Care at the Hospice House
Peace, Privacy and the Freedom to Choose
Some families find comfort and serenity in their private suite. Others make every inch of our beautiful Hospice House their home.
Most families need both- precious privacy for quiet times of sharing, along with bright open spaces to welcome family and friends, engage with staff and volunteers, celebrate a birthday, eat a favorite meal, or feel the sun warm their skin in the Geri Smith Memorial Garden.
Respite for Caregivers
We know the responsibility for a loved one’s care can be emotionally and physically draining. Sometimes patients would rather be in a setting where loved ones can instead focus on spending quality time together. Our Hospice House makes this possible, allowing family and loved ones to meaningfully connect with patients as spouses, children, parents, or friends, not as caregivers.
Food is a universal language that nurtures and connects. Our Hospice House dietary team is available throughout the day to provide custom meals served on china, along with hot and cold drinks and snacks.
