Our Services

In-Home Care with Hospice


Hospice is difficult and emotional. Our In-Home Hospice Care takes the burden of daily care from your family’s shoulders and puts it in our professional hands. We fill the gaps between nurse visits ensuring your loved one is comfortable and all the necessary care details are handled.

We’ve been providing this service for many years and have strong working relationships with local hospice programs, like Group Health, Providence, and Evergreen. We have an established Nurse Delegation system that allows our experienced caregivers and Care Managers to deliver premier care for however long you need it. 

We know the importance of communication during this time. We use our communication log protocol to facilitate communication between our caregivers, visiting family, and the Hospice Program nurses. Our online Family Room and Weekly Reports system provides information to family members near and far.

Our In-Home Hospice Care includes:

  • Feeding (usually a special diet)
  • Toileting
  • Bed baths
  • Repositioning
  • Medication assistance (under Nurse Delegation for the hospice medications)
  • Other services as needed

Nurse Delegation: How it fits into In-Home Hospice Care

Nurse delegation occurs when a registered nurse delegates specific nursing tasks to certified in-home care caregivers. It usually involves administering the medication from the patient’s comfort kit, which they receive when they enter the hospice program. The medication is typically morphine (pain) and lorazepam (anti-anxiety).

Nurse delegation occurs when the patient can no longer participate in the hospice process. As regulated by Washington State, nurse delegation is not optional. 

We will tell you when this point is reached.
