What is Hospice Care?

Our Westchester County Hospice Care provides care for patients to manage their symptoms, thereby reducing suffering and pain, managing emotional needs, and providing comfort to enhance the quality of life depending on the stage of illness.

  • Hospice works to support the patient and personal caregivers, often family members, as looking after a loved one on hospice can be a challenging experience.

Jansen Hospice Care Reviews

We often get reviews from our lovely family members of clients. Below is a testimony from a family member of a hospice patient.

“Jansen made an unbearable experience somewhat bearable. My wife of 52 years went into hospice at home … from metastatic breast cancer. The moment we agreed with the doctors to end chemo and move to hospice, Jansen took over.

Social Worker Deb Hanley organized everything.

Nurse Marcia Roberts was available at all times and made sure that we had all the necessary medicines and equipment before we knew that we needed them.

The aides who came to our home every day were all both kind and competent.

I had never heard of Jansen before the staff at Lawrence Hospital introduced us. I do not know how to say thank you any better than writing this 5-star review.”

This place changed everything for my family. We struggled with caring for my mom at home for 5 years and when they arrived it was like angels singing... Our social worker - Jody and our RN Violeta - made my mom comfortable and cared not only for her, but for our family as if we were their own. They were kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend them!!!
