Chicago Heights Hospice Care

Few things are as difficult as the end-of-life transition. Both the patient and their family may face numerous hardships as they come to terms with the reality they face. Shiloh Hospice recognizes your need for support during this time. Our mission is to provide a wealth of comfort for patients and their families who are starting the transition into hospice care. We want you and your loved one to focus on spending time together, so we create an innovative care plan that encompasses all of the patient’s unique needs. Together, we can ease the challenges during this transition through compassionate Chicago Heights hospice care services.   

What Is Hospice?

Hospice is a specialized type of medical and comfort care that aims to increase a patient’s quality of life when they have a terminal illness. When a patient is approaching the end of life and a doctor determines that the disease cannot be cured, the treatment plan shifts to providing comfort and symptoms management. Hospice care is interdisciplinary and aims to support a patient and their family’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs. 

Hospice care helps the patient feel comfortable and peaceful in several ways. First, our care team addresses your loved one’s unique physical needs, which may require medical equipment or a specialized diet to achieve maximum comfort. Unlike palliative care, hospice is designed to only relieve the symptoms of a disease, not cure it. We respect the family’s and the patient’s wishes at every stage of the process to ensure we provide the care that they need. Care can also be provided across various settings, such as in a private residence or a hospital. Ultimately, our goal is to answer your loved one’s unique requests and ensure that all decisions are made in their best interests. 

Our Compassionate Chicago Heights Hospice Care Team Strives for Excellence

At Shiloh Hospice, we strive for excellence across all of our services. We want terminal patients to feel comforted and calm as they enter the end of life stage. Knowing what to expect during the hospice journey can help you and your loved one prepare for the road ahead. Our care team works closely with you to explore every option so the care your loved one receives is in-line with their values and preferences. 

Hospice care can only be started at the direction of the patient’s primary physician. A doctor must have determined that the patient has six or less months left to live assuming their terminal illness follows its typical course. 

Unwavering Support Through the End-of-Life Journey

Shiloh Hospice delivers the support your family needs when your loved one is entering the final stage of life. We are here for you when you need us the most, and our Chicago Heights hospice care team is here to answer all of your questions as you adjust to these complicated changes. If you’re ready to discuss your loved one’s needs with a hospice care provider, contact our office today to explore the ways we can serve you.

We Aim For Excellence In All That We Do.

Hospice is committed to providing compassionate support for individuals facing terminal illnesses, caring for their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being as they navigate the end of life. Similarly, palliative care shares the same philosophy of comprehensive patient care, extending its services to non-terminal patients, offering them the opportunity to lead longer, happier lives.
