Hospice Buffalo
  • Nursing Home/ALF/DD Team
  • Buffalo, NY, USA

While many Hospice Buffalo participants receive care in their homes, the Hospice assisted living and nursing home program enables us to bring our particular expertise to residents of area facilities. The program's purpose is to allow residents in the advanced stages of illness to remain in familiar and supportive surroundings while receiving palliative (comfort-focused) care. Hospice enhances the specialized expertise of the nursing assisted living and home team with the special care, emotional support and guidance residents and their families need during this distressing time.

This program is available for any Erie County Hospice eligible patient, in facility, with advanced, end-stage illness.
