The goal of providing Hospice Care at American House Riverview in Wayne County is to comfort both the patient and family with the best medical and emotional treatments available. We take care to avoid a disruptive move and unnecessary or invasive treatments. Palliative services through hospice can provide your loved one with excellent, customized care while keeping him or her in familiar, comfortable surroundings.*
In addition to providing Hospice Care to individuals reaching the final stages of life, hospice also provides support for families coping with the impending loss of their loved one. While this is, of course, a difficult time for the patient, it’s always hard for their loved ones too.
