Hospice & Home Care Services
An extension of Virginia Mason Memorial, Compass Care includes services offered from the time you or someone close to you receives a life-changing diagnosis, all the way through counseling for families who have lost a loved one. We encourage you to consider Compass Care when it's time to seek quality of life programs like home health assistance, hospice or family support.
Home Health is a program for those who need nursing care, rehabilitation, or therapy at home. The Home Health team of registered or licensed nurses, social workers, homecare aides, and occupational, speech, or physical therapists work closely with your physician.
Palliative Care serves any member of our community facing serious illness. Our focus is on relieving suffering and improving quality of life for you and your family. Palliative Care works with your medical providers and other in-home care services to provide patient centered and family-oriented care.
Hospice offers comprehensive support to terminally ill patients. In addition to providing pain and symptom management for the patient, hospice gives comfort and reassurance to families during uncertain life transitions. You should consider hospice care when there is a life expectancy of six months or less and you or your loved one have decided to forgo seeking curative measures.
