Hospice

"My brother passed away at his home. During the final six weeks of life, your staff provided excellent care for him and offered constant support, guidance, and reassurance for his wife. While our family is devastated by our loss, we will be forever grateful for the care he received from your nursing staff. They went above and beyond. I am truly appreciative that my brother was surrounded by such caring professionals in the last few weeks of his life. My heartfelt thanks to all of you."
Why Choose Hospice?

Eastern Maine HomeCare’s hospice program is for people with a life-limiting illness who want comfort care rather than curative treatment. Our hospice professionals specialize in pain and symptom management and physical, emotional and spiritual support of the patient. Our hospice also supports the family including comprehensive bereavement services. In addition to clinical services, hospice provides the compassionate care of trained volunteers who help the family with respite and other patient and family needs.

An early referral to hospice means improved quality of life for our patients. Common diagnoses include, but are not limited to:
  • Cancer
  • Heart and Liver diseases
  • COPD and other lung diseases
  • Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia
  • Neurological diseases such as ALS and Parkinson’s
We will schedule a visit for you and your family to talk about our services and how they might benefit you. These consultations are free of charge and without obligation. For more information, please contact our EMHC Patient Referral Line toll-free at 1-866-591-8843.
