Home Care & Hospice

 

Mountain States Home Health and Hospice is committed to providing quality in home services.

One call can provide all your home care and hospice needs. We offer a wide range of services that you can receive in your home.

What is Home Health?

Home health care allows patients to remain in the home while receiving medical care. Home care may:

  • Assist in the management of illness or injury
  • Eliminate the need for nursing home stays
  • Shorten or prevent hospital stays

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is a special kind of caring for patients and families when illnesses no longer respond to cure-oriented treatment or the patient is experiencing a life-limiting illness. Hospice care is about quality of life, regardless of the time that remains. It affirms quality of life and provides comfort, spiritual and emotional care while maintaining patient dignity. It is a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Hospice provides medications, needed services and medical equipment that are related to the hospice diagnosis.
