Seasons Hospice is a community based, non-profit organization in Rochester, MN. We provide specialized care to people living with terminal illness while giving support to their loved ones. We have been caring for residents of southeastern Minnesota for fifteen years with our home hospice services and residential hospice facility.
Hospice provides comprehensive care when a cure is no longer the goal. The emphasis of hospice care is on quality of life, and on maximizing comfort as conditions take their natural course. Hospice care is holistic, delivered by a team of professionals and trained volunteers, designed to address the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and psychological issues that accompany end of life. We focus on controlling distressing symptoms, and on other concerns the patient or family may have.
Hospice is not a place, but a philosophy of care. Our philosophy is that dying can be accepted as a unique part of life, respecting the right of each individual to actively participate in planning for how hospice care will be delivered, wherever the patient calls home. Seasons Hospice affirms and cherishes life, helping each person to live each day to the fullest extent possible.
When is the right time for hospice?
If you or a loved one is living with terminal illness and are not seeking a cure, hospice may be the right choice for you. Generally, hospice is appropriate for persons who are in the last six months of their life; however hospice services are available as long as needed, provided certain eligibility criteria are met. Feel free to discuss these issues with your physician.
Seasons Hospice provides individualized and compassionate care, education and support for the dying and those who have experienced loss.
Adding Quality of Life
Adding quality of life to each day is the vision of Seasons Hospice and we uphold this vision through the care and support we provide to our patients, their loved ones and our bereavement clients.
