The mission of Hospice of Southern Kentucky, Inc. is to provide support that enables the terminally ill to spend their final days in a pain-free and dignified home environment. Trained volunteers and paid professionals minister to the physical, psychological, spiritual, and social needs of the patients and their families.
The purpose of hospice is to provide comfort and support to you when diagnosed with a terminal illness and limited life expectancy, as estimated by your physician. This care, also, includes your family and caregivers. Comfort care includes many different areas, for example:
1. Physical care: pain and symptom control.
2. Supportive psychosocial and spiritual care.
3. Medical management of the hospice diagnosis.
4. Supplies, equipment, and medications related to the hospice diagnosis.
This care can be provided in the patient’s “home”, which includes the Hospice House, a nursing home, an assisted living facility, or the patient's or family's home. Supplies may include wound care and incontinent supplies that relate to the terminal illness.
Bereavement educators keep in touch with families of our patients for up to 12 months or more as needed. We offer individual and group grief support. We also offer grief classes to the community that are free of charge. Please contact us for current class schedule.
Please contact us directly with any questions, comments, or scheduling inquiries you may have.
