Hospice provides for unique needs.
Hospice is a philosophy of care that provides specialized health care with a focus on dignity for people nearing the end of their life. Hospice care can be provided at home, in assisted living facilities, independent living facilities and skilled nursing facilities.
For those living with chronic illness or who require ongoing medical care after hospitalization, Home Care services include a care plan, necessary medical equipment and coordination with physicians and care teams, all tailored to each patient’s unique needs.
Banner Home Care & Hospice services rely on charitable gifts to provide patients the compassionate home health and hospice care they deserve, regardless of their ability to pay. Gifts make a difference in the lives of the thousands of patients who turn to Banner Home Care & Hospice each year. There are several ways to support these important services:
- Caring Connections. Help provide palliative care for uninsured and underinsured individuals to match their treatments with their goals.
- Bereavement & Support. Support the Dottie Kissinger Bereavement Camp, a free camp in Payson that helps children cope with the loss of a loved one, as well as Banner’s Grief Recovery Program that helps individuals heal from loss.
- Music Therapy. Give terminally ill patients and their families the soothing and uplifting gift of music provided at the bedside by a certified music therapist.
- Home Care & Hospice General Fund. Gifts to this fund do the most good by funding an array of needs and services for thousands of patients in hospice and receiving home care each year.
