Best Westchester Hospice Care, Westchester, New York

Services Offered By Westchester Hospice

Hospice is a unique way of caring. It works to emphasize comfort and dignity for people experiencing terminal illnesses. The philosophy accepts that death is the final stage of life, working to affirm one’s life, not hastening or postponing death. It’s also important to note that hospice does not work to cure an underlying disease.

The main focus of hospice is to support 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.

Jansen provides the following services in one’s own Westchester area home, in a skilled nursing or assisted living facility, or in a local New-York Presbyterian contracted hospital:

  • 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
  • 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

Reviews For Jansen’s Westchester Hospice

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 mom’s case, they were the only ones willing to take it.

They stood by me through all the trials and tribulations and I could’ve never done that transition without them. Eternally grateful.

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!”
