Doctor’s Home Care (DHC) & Hospice

Doctors Home Care provides appropriate and effective physician directed care to individuals in the home setting. The team works with the physician to conduct patient evaluations, review medication regimens, and develop an individualized plan of treatment in order to ensure the best quality of care for each patient.

Hospice is a concept of supportive care which is an option for terminally ill patients and their families. It focuses on quality of life when the length of life cannot be extended. The primary goal is to provide the patient and the patient’s loved ones with supportive and loving care so that the patient may remain in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of home. Hospice offers physical (pain control), emotional, spiritual and social support services as needed. The program strives to allow patients to remain in their home and be active for as long as possible.
