Let Our Family Help Your Family

Hospice Services of Reno offers peace of mind to the relatives of our precious patients. We want them to rest assured that their loved ones are in very capable hands with our team of care professionals and specialists. It is our duty to give peace to the entire family, guiding them every step of the way until they find acceptance in the situation.

What is a Hospice?

Hospice is a philosophy of care that focuses on providing comfort and support to people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, as well as to their families.

Where Can I Receive Hospice Services?

Hospice is not a place but a philosophy of care. Hospice patients are cared for in their homes, wherever the home may be (the patient’s home, the home of a relative or friend, or a nursing home).

What is the Goal of Hospice Services of Reno?

We strive to provide the highest standard of care that is guaranteed to serve the everyday health needs of our patients and their families. End-of-life care delivery has to be customized in ways that would truly enhance the quality of life of our dying patients and give them a chance to find acceptance, peace, and happiness in their situation. However long one has to live, it should be spent in the most fulfilling ways. Wallowing in sorrow and misery is not the way people should be spending their remaining days. They should be doing what they love and living their lives in the best way they can.

The Hospice Philosophy

Hospice provides support and care for persons in the last phases of a terminal illness so that they may live as fully and as comfortably as possible. Hospice recognizes that the dying process is a part of the normal process of living and focuses on enhancing the quality of remaining life. Hospice affirms life, and neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, individuals and their families may be free to attain a degree of satisfaction in preparation for death. Hospice recognizes that human growth and development can be a lifelong process. Hospice seeks to preserve the inherent potential for growth within individuals and families during the last phase of life.

Physical, social, spiritual, and emotional care are provided by a clinically directed interdisciplinary team consisting of patients and their families, professionals, and volunteers during the:

  • Last stages of an illness
  • Dying process
  • Bereavement period

We are Hospice Services of Reno. We serve Washoe County twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week.
