Serving all of Central Oregon with end of life care since 1981

No one is refused admission to hospice care for lack of ability to pay

Hospice of Redmond’s focus is on quality of life

for you and your family.

We provide hospice care that honors your wishes, allows you to make choices, optimizes your comfort and dignity, and is consistent with your needs and goals.

Our team is dedicated to supporting you and your family 24/7— only a phone call away, day or night. 

We Support Your Choices

Your Choice for Comfort

Choosing hospice care does not mean you are  “giving up.” It means your focus has changed from finding a cure for your illness to being as comfortable and in control of your life as possible.

Your Personal Decision

If you are facing terminal illness, discuss hospice care with your doctor.  This is a personal decision about your life and no one needs to face it alone. Call us and we will answer any questions that you may have on how hospice care will benefit you and your family.  The earlier you make the decision, the sooner you and your family can access our team and the services we provide.

Honoring Your Wishes

We honor your wishes, focusing on you the person, not just your illness. We address your medical, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs, tailoring our support to what you want and believe will help you the most. We honor your personal journey by making suggestions for your care while recognizing the final choice is always yours.

Care in Your Own Home

Your Hospice team provides your care in the comfort of your own home, whether your personal residence, a family member’s home or a facility.

Services for Your Family

We offer a variety of supportive services for your family, including education on how to help with your care, tools for caring for themselves, and bereavement support for your family and caregiver.

 A Referral By Your Doctor

A signed referral by a doctor starts the process for an evaluation and admission to Hospice. If you are unsure whether you, a loved one or friend may benefit from Hospice services, please call and talk to
our staff at (541) 548-7483.

Paying for Hospice Care 

Hospice of Redmond's services are a benefit of Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances. Services are also paid for through donations from individuals, families and foundations.

You Can Change Your Mind

Receiving hospice care is your personal choice. You can change your mind about receiving care at any time and leave our program if you decide to pursue curative treatment for your illness again. You can also decide to return to our care.

Hospice Care as Long as You Are Eligible

You receive hospice care as long as your doctor and/or the Hospice Medical Director certify that you are eligible.  Once on hospice, there is no set time limit, we care for you throughout the end of your life.

Our Team

  • A small team of dedicated compassionate professionals offering personalized care for each patient
  • A close working relationship with your personal physician to keep you as comfortable and in control of your life as possible
  • Care in the familiar surroundings of your own home, whether a personal residence, a family member’s home, or a facility such as an adult foster home, assisted living facility, or nursing home
  •  24-hour access to our staff for you and your family for answers to your questions, support and guidance as well as assistance with patient care--we are just a phone call away
  • The medications to assist with symptom control and pain management as well as medical equipment (e.g. hospital beds, walkers, wheelchairs, oxygen) for your comfort

 We encourage family members and friends to not only remain close to their loved one but to participate in that loved one’s care as much as possible as the primary caregivers. We recognize the family's need for ongoing emotional support and help in the day-to-day care of their loved one. 

How to Get Started with Hospice Care

Admission to our Hospice is simple. All that is needed is:

  • A decision by you to discontinue curative treatments (i.e. chemotherapy for cancer);
  • A desire by you to pursue treatments meant only to promote comfort; and
  • A referral from your doctor who can state that if your disease continues on its present course, your life expectancy is 6 months or less.

Initial referrals of patients to Hospice are frequently made by family members or doctors. We meet with each individual to determine their appropriateness for admission to Hospice.​

Other Available Options

Hospice of Redmond also provides a Transitions program, for those not quite ready for hospice, as well as Palliative Care, for those struggling with symptom management and needing a holistic approach.  These programs are a part of the person centered care that our team offers.
