Hospice care is designed to focus on quality of life for the terminally ill patient. Our goal is to enable patients to be as comfortable and as free of symptoms and pain as possible, so that they live each day as fully as possible.
We believe in treating the patient holistically, honoring their life and their wishes. Our philosophy is to provide support for the patient’s emotional, social, and spiritual needs as well as medical symptoms management as part of treating the whole person. We incorporate a small team approach in providing compassionate personalized care for each patient.
Our primary focus is our patients and their families, who we serve with dignity and respect. We believe that our patients have a right to participate in all decisions about their care. We offer suggestions based on sound medical practices but it is our patient’s life and ultimately our patient’s choice as to what will help them on this very personal journey.
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.
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.
