Livingston Hospice is a special kind of care for the terminally ill, their families and caregivers. Hospice care addresses and meets the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients. Services are provided in the patient’s home, wherever their home may be. Livingston’s hospice team, including our medical director, nurses, social workers, spiritual care providers and volunteers, combine their expertise, passion and compassion in providing end of life care. Bereavement services are provided to family and friends by our dedicated staff of grief counselors.
Hospice patients live with a variety of diagnoses that include heart disease, Alzheimer’s, lung disease and cancer. Anyone with a life expectancy of six months or less who is no longer receiving cure-oriented treatment is eligible for our hospice care, regardless of age or ability to pay. The goal of cure is replaced with the goal of comfort, dignity and quality of life.
