Dignity and hope at home since 1984
Facing a serious or life-threatening illness requires both courage and support. Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care is here to help. We provide support services for those battling terminal illness at home, in a skilled nursing or assisted living facility, or in a local New York Presbyterian contracted hospital. For over thirty years, Jansen has provided compassionate care and unparalleled services to patients who wish to live in the comfortable surroundings of their own home, among family and friends, with peace and dignity.
Jansen’s personalized approach to hospice care imparts peace of mind during a very difficult and vulnerable time. Helping family members is an essential part of our mission, and our exceptional staff and professionally trained volunteers are available when needed most. Meeting the unique needs of each of our patients is the focus of the Jansen interdisciplinary hospice team – doctor, nurse, social worker, home health aide, clergy, therapist, and volunteer – who work closely with the patient’s own physician. Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, licensed and certified as an Article 40 Hospice Provider in New York State, and is accredited by The Joint Commission.
Our unique history
Jansen Memorial Hospice opened its doors on January 3, 1984, bringing the gift of dignity and hope to families in Westchester and Bronx counties. For over 35 years, the care provided by our nurses, social workers, doctors, aides, therapists and volunteers has truly been immeasurable.
Jansen’s unique history began with the vision of one woman, Elizabeth “Bissie” Jansen, who cared for her husband, Allan, throughout his illness with throat cancer until his untimely death at age 53.
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!!!
