Finding The Best In-Home Hospice Care In Westchester
Our hospice program emphasizes the mission and ideals of hospice care. Hospice care is a special way of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for people coping with terminal illnesses. The philosophy accepts death as a final stage of life; it affirms life but does not hasten or postpone one’s death.
Hospice is focused on the support of patients, working to provide the highest quality of life for whatever time remains at a patient’s “home.” Whether it is a private residence, skilled nursing facility, or assisted living facility, Westchester hospice care works to help those with life-limiting illnesses live with peace and dignity.

In-Home Hospice Care In Westchester: Caring For Patients In Their Final Days

Not only are the physical parts of dealing with a terminal illness difficult, but spiritual and emotional health are too. That’s why Jansen not only offers hospice services but bereavement services.
Each person reacts differently to grief, and it can be a very isolating experience.
We have clinical social workers, specially trained counselors, and volunteers who have experience dealing with all areas of bereavement. We offer individual counseling services as well as bereavement support groups.
Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care understands that everyone grieves differently. That is why we offer our families a variety of bereavement services for up to a period of 13 months following the death of their loved one.
