When is the Delaware Hospice Center Right for Your Loved One?

While the majority of Delaware Hospice services are delivered in the home, there may be times when your loved one needs additional support. You may notice that distressing symptoms are increasing, pain has become more difficult to manage, or you may simply begin to feel overwhelmed.

Periodically, a person coping with a serious illness requires short-term care for symptom management. If this happens, The Delaware Hospice Center is here for you.

The Delaware Hospice Center offers an alternative to hospital care, combining state-of-the-art technology with specialized, expert 24-hour care in a spacious and tranquil environment. At the Center, we can provide pain control, manage symptoms, and handle medical crises beyond the support that can be offered in the home setting.

Designed and decorated to feel as much as possible like home, the Center’s rooms are large, comfortable, and inviting. Family and pets are always welcome. Families have access to a kitchen to cook meals together and areas to gather and relax. The Center offers comfort delivered in a protective setting of around-the-clock expert care.
