Prairie Home Hospice & Community Care has the knowledge and experience to help with every aspect of care for those diagnosed with a serious illness. Call us first.

Hospice is a special concept of care for a person in the latter stages of a terminal illness. Our philosophy affirms life and regards death as a normal process. The focus of care is quality of living and dignity with the patient/family retaining control of their lives and treatments. Hospice cares for the total person with support and comfort for the physical, emotional, spiritual and psychosocial needs of both patient and the family. Hospice care is available to anyone who meets our admission criteria without regards to national origin, handicap, age, race, color, creed or ability to pay.
Prairie Home Hospice
Since 1984, Prairie Home Hospice has been providing hospice care to patients in their home – wherever that may be. We provide hospice care in homes, apartments, senior living facilities, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. When you choose Prairie Home Hospice to provide your hospice care, we’ll work with you and your physician(s) to create an individual plan of care that meets your individual needs and respects your personal priorities and preferences. We’ll provide an Registered Nurse (RN) Case Manager to coordinate your care and assign a care team to support your plan of care. That care team will likely include the RN Case Manager, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), a Social Worker, and a Home Health Aide. Your team may also include a pet therapy team, a massage therapist and/or others who provide additional services and support as part of your care. We will also be there to support the family, based on their individual needs and preferences as well.
