24 Hours Care’s mission of “Enhancing Quality of Life at the End of Life” is put into practice every day. Yet bringing comfort to patients with life-limiting conditions, and their families, is more than a mission—it’s a way of delivering care that addresses the needs of the whole person at a significant time of his or her life. Whether comfort takes the form of physical, emotional or spiritual care, our interdisciplinary team is ready to provide comprehensive hospice services to every person in our community who needs and wants them.
Most patients and families want to receive care in the home. More than 90 percent of 24 Hours Care services are delivered in patients’ homes or in homelike settings such as community-based residential facilities, assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
We also make hospice services available to patients in hospital settings. When in-home care cannot meet the needs of our patients and families, short-term inpatient care at our campus in Madison or contracted hospitals and skilled nursing facilities may be an option. Inpatient care provides short-term, intensive monitoring and treatment of acute pain or other complex symptoms.
But regardless of the setting, 24 Hours Care’s team approach to providing compassionate end-of-life care remains the same. We will help in assisting family and friends care for individuals with terminal illness.
Our Hospice Care program is geared towards helping relieve the physical and emotional pain of the patient, family and friends and enabling the ill person to live at home with comfort and dignity.
Our clinic is in Newton, Massachusetts, we are a Medicare/Medicaid certified Hospice Program.
