Meet Joe.Joe has a terminal illness and his family is worried about his comfort and health in the upcoming months. However, Joe is undecided, thinking it may be too soon for hospice care. That's where we can help by providing needed medical attention, pain control, spiritual and emotional support as well as support for family members.
It is our responsibility to help you and your family answer the question...
The caring staff of Albemarle Hospice helps patients and families cope with terminal illness.
We specialize in pain and symptom management, spiritual care, emotional support, and bereavement support as we help patients and their families through the end of life's journey.
Many families find that caring for a loved one during a terminal illness is a special time, an opportunity to give back to their loved one. It allows opportunities to say the things they need to say, and do what they need to do. Our job is to give families the tools they need so they can be confident in caring for their loved one. We empower family members to be good caregivers.
