Increasing comfort and dignity during life's final months with Bluegrass Hospice Care℠.

When is the right time for Bluegrass Hospice Care℠?

Many people are surprised to learn hospice is for weeks and months of care, not just for the last days of life.  That time often begins when a physician expects a patient to live six months or less if their illness or disease runs its normal course.  

You may know us as Hospice of the Bluegrass℠. We are now also known as Bluegrass Hospice Care℠, one of the many services provided by Bluegrass Care Navigators℠. Yet we’re still the same great provider with the same great team – with the same heart, commitment and expertise that built our reputation in the communities we’ve served since 1978.

How can Bluegrass Hospice Care℠ help you or your loved one?

We start by listening, finding out what's most important to you, then connecting you with the right care.  After learning your needs and goals, we assign a personal team of experts to provide special care and support through a combination of the following services that are just right for you:  

Pain and symptom management

Help with activities of daily living

Emotional and spiritual support

Medication and equipment management

Respite care

Caregiver Support

Who does Bluegrass Hospice Care℠ help?

Hospice patients no longer receive treatments to cure their terminal illness, but instead choose care to improve their comfort and quality of life.

Families of patients also benefit from Bluegrass Hospice Care℠. We train and coach family members as caregivers and provide emotional and spiritual support to help them during their loved one’s illness and through seasons of grieving.

Where is Bluegrass Hospice Care℠ provided?

We provide care wherever the patient calls home. While this is often a house or apartment, we also provide care at nursing homes, assisted living facilities and hospitals.

If a patient’s care needs are too complicated for home care or require a higher level of attention from nurses and other experts, we can provide care at one of our Hospice Care Centers or with our Crisis Care team.
