On-call services 24/7 and support between visits

Patients and family members may have questions and concerns at any time day or night. Sometimes changes occur between visits, during the night and on weekends. We are always here to help.

Community Hospice on-call services are locally-based and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide the support that our patients and their families need. With 24/7 help, it is comforting to know that a nurse is always available to assist patients at any time, day or night, to take care of urgent problems.

If needed, Community Hospice can arrange for a nurse to visit and consult with the patient’s physician or Community Hospice medical director if medications or other treatments need to be changed.

Community Hospice not only provides support for the patient, we are here to support the whole family. For instance, we receive calls when:

  • The caregiver or other family members are feeling so stressed that they are having problems coping
  • Other family members, especially children, change their eating or sleeping habits, or they suddenly have problems outside of the house
