General info about Hospice in Hudson NC
Is hospice the answer?
Hospice is centered on caring for the whole patient – with expert medical care, pain management and emotional and spiritual support – along with resources, information and emotional support for your family. Hospice care is provided in the comfort of your own home by a team of physicians, nurses and other caregivers working together to meet your family’s unique needs.
Many of these families are facing a serious, life-limiting illness for the first time. This can be overwhelming for both the patient and the entire family – especially if you don't know where to turn for answers and support. So hospice is a good choice.
They treat you right.
They treat you great here. they give you everything you would ever want and need.

The Caldwell Partnership for Palliative Care, a consultative service, helps patients dealing with chronic and debilitating illnesses manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. Unlike traditional hospice care, palliative care services are available to people who are not terminally ill, but are facing an illness that interferes with their ability to enjoy and cope with every day life. Palliative care is intended to give patients relief and comfort by relieving the pain, symptoms, and stress of serious illness. Palliative care is appropriate for anyone, at any age, at any point in the illness, including those seeking curative treatment, and is often used along with other treatments and therapies to help patients manage difficulties that come with chronic illness. Palliative care services are provided in patients’ homes, in long-term-care facilities, in hospitals, or in our outpatient clinic.
Palliative care is covered by Medicare/Medicaid and most private insurances. Because of the generosity of the community, our palliative care services are provided to anyone who needs it, regardless of ability to pay.
