Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care provides hospice services in the Westchester County area to improve the quality of life for patients experiencing life-limiting illnesses. We also provide support for families going through this time.
Hospice care is a unique way of caring for individuals with terminal illnesses; hospice care affirms life but does not try to hasten or postpone death. Hospice care does not cure an underlying disease but works to support the highest quality of life for whatever time is left for a given patient.
Understanding Your Options For Hospice Services In Westchester County, NY
Hospice provides care for individuals looking to manage their symptoms, thereby reducing suffering and pain, managing emotional needs, and providing comfort to enhance the quality of life.
Hospice care supports patients who have a life-limiting illness and assists family members and their caregivers. Caring for a loved one in hospice can be an incredible honor but can also be very challenging.
To ease the burden, hospice offers support, education, respite care, and counseling to reduce stress and anxiety for caregivers and patients.
Some of the services from our Westchester County Hospice Care programs can include:
- Skilled nursing care and visits from a registered nurse who formulates the hospice plan of care in communication with the patient’s physician, including arrangement for medications, supplies, equipment, and additional services as needed
- Certified home health aides who provide care and assistance with personal needs
- 24-hour on-call services and assistance, so we are always available for our patients and their families
- A medical director who is responsible for overall medical care and planning, with an emphasis on symptom control and pain management
- Certified social workers who assist with resource and care planning, in addition to providing emotional support
- Spiritual counseling for all faith communities
- And much more

This place and the workers are truly a blessing. I can never repay them for the help and support that they gave me with my mom.While no other company wanted to take my moms case they were the only ones willing to take it. They stood by me thru all the trails and tribulations and I could’ve never done that transition without them eternally grateful.
