Our Hospice Care Services

Hospice care is specialized end-of-life care that gives patients and families the chance to spend time together with comfort and dignity, receiving services focused on sustaining quality of life. Rochester Regional Health Hospice Care (formerly Lifetime Care) provides services to minimize pain and manage the symptoms of advanced, life-threatening illness. In addition to the patient’s well-being, our hospice services also address the spiritual, emotional, and psychological concerns of patients and their families.

What is Hospice Care?

Rochester Regional Health’s Hospice Care provides compassionate care for people in the last phases of an incurable disease so that they may live as fully and as comfortably as possible. Hospice accepts death as the final stage of life while affirming life, but not trying to hasten or postpone death. By treating the person and the symptoms of the disease rather than the disease itself, hospice care ensures a person’s final days may be spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by their loved ones. Hospice care is family-centered, including the patient and their family in all decisions.
