Hospice of Rockingham County, Inc. strives to offer the highest quality end-of-life care possible to terminally ill patients and support for their families. Our services include experienced medical care, 24-hour on-call support, emotional and social support, spiritual care, bereavement care, & trained volunteers.
Hospice of Rockingham County most often provides care in a patients home, but we can provide care wherever home may be: assisted-living facilities, nursing homes,.. retirement homes, or
group homes. We also provide care in our own state-of-the-art inpatient facility. Opened in 2007, this is the only facility of its kind in Rockingham County. Offering five inpatient beds and three residential beds, the Hospice Home is a warm, inviting, and peaceful option when caring for a patient at home is no longer possible.
In addition to end-of-life care, HRC offers its Supportive Care Program for individuals not medically appropriate for hospice care or for those who are appropriate but emotionally may not be ready for hospice care. Supportive Care provides support, education, and outreach but does not offer hands-on care and is not a billable service and therefore does not prevent participants from seeking any sort of aggressive therapies.
HRC also serves as a grief and bereavement resource for Rockingham County and the surrounding area. Our grief and bereavement services are available at no charge to anyone needing extra support after a loss.
Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. If a patient has no insurance coverage or resources to pay on a sliding fee scale, HRC is very proud to be able to say we have never turned away a patient who needed our care.
