In the past, individuals at the end of their life had to move from their home and into a different setting if they wanted to receive hospice care. As a certified community hospice provider, Cedar Village enables patients to spend their last days in their home, whether that be in one of our independent and assisted living apartments or the surrounding community. This change promotes physical, spiritual and emotional well being for both patients and families.
Hospice patients now have an opportunity to die with dignity in their home wherever that may be located. This will alleviate undue stress and upheavel, and promote physical comfort as well as spiritual and emotional well being for both patients and families.
In the long-term, dying at home with dignity will become the norm, not the exception. In addition, it will alleviate some of the caretaker duties for family members which will allow them to better attend to the emotional and spiritual needs of their loved one.
