Hospice of the Bluegrass is now Bluegrass Care Navigators. Having cared for thousands of families in our communities since 1978, we’ve been expanding our service offerings and have outgrown our name. We now provide expert care long before life’s final months.
We changed our name to Bluegrass Care Navigators to guide and provide care to more people in more ways at earlier stages of serious illness. Yet, we’re still the same great provider with the same great people. We still have the same compassion and commitment that has always defined Hospice of the Bluegrass. We now have a new name to reflect our growing range of services.
Our services currently include:
Bluegrass Extra Care - a private pay, personalized service for clients in their home, nursing or assisted living facility. Services can include homemaker/companionship, certified nursing assistants, sitters, and skilled nursing.
Bluegrass Home Primary Care – a comprehensive, ongoing expert care for chronic medical conditions in those who are “home limited.”
Bluegrass Transitional Care - a program provided by the hospital or insurance to eligible patients. The program is staffed by nurses with special training to help after a hospital stay.
Bluegrass Palliative Care - a consult service providing specialized medical care focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stresses of a serious illness, all with the goal of improving quality of life.
Bluegrass Hospice Care – a program providing expert care for the final months of life, including medical, emotional and spiritual support for the patient and entire family.
Bluegrass Grief Care – a unique counseling service for support and guidance through anticipatory grief and bereavement.
Bluegrass Care Navigators is committed to delivering the right combination of care to meet your needs at every step – the right care at the right time at the right place.

Since our founding as Community Hospice of Lexington, some 38 years ago, we have cared for thousands of families in our communities. However, we have grown to provide a wide range of services in addition to hospice care – including private nursing, case management, palliative care and grief care.
Sherri Weisenfluh joined the Hospice of the Bluegrass staff in 1992 from Bluegrass East Comprehensive Care, with a charge to provide clinical insight to the social work staff. That soon grew to directing the bereavement, social work and chaplaincy staff.
