Homestead Hospice is very proactive about offering continuous care in your home for aggressive pain or symptom management. It is our goal to keep our patients at home if at all possible. However, if patients need acute hospitalizations or stays at hospice in-patient units, we also have contracts with these facilities to ensure all care options are available to you at all times.
