Hospice Care Settings

Hospice of North Central Ohio provides care in the home, in nursing homes, and assisted living facilities. If care is provided in an extended living facility, Hospice of North Central Ohio staff does not replace the nursing care currently being provided. Rather, we partner with the extended care facilities to provide additional services including: nurse aides, nursing services, social services, specialized medical equipment, therapeutic treatments, chaplain services, complementary therapies, and volunteer help.

Hospice care is available to patients who need the following:

  • assistance with pain or symptom management
  • medication adjustment
  • observation or other stabilizing treatment
  • short-term respite care for caregiver relief
  • transitional care from the hospital to home.
