Hospice does not refer to a specific location, but to a comprehensive, holistic philosophy for providing end-of-life care. You and your family choose where you want to receive your hospice care.

Hospice Care Locations

You can receive hospice care in your home or at a care facility. The choice is up to you, based on your preferences and the availability of home caregivers. If you do not have caregivers available to help you at home, or you need more care than they can provide, a care facility may work best for you.

Your Home
Many people choose to receive hospice care in their home or the home of a loved one. This can be a single family home, apartment, assisted living unit, or wherever you call home. Our hospice team can help you get the supplies and equipment you need to make in-home hospice care possible. Your family and other loved ones will be your main caregivers. Members of the hospice team make regular visits to provide additional care and support.

Skilled Nursing Facility
The ThedaCare hospice team can provide hospice care at skilled nursing facilities (nursing homes) throughout Wisconsin’s Fox Valley region. We can help you identify which facilities have available rooms and assist in choosing the best place for you. Our hospice team collaborates with your care providers at the facility to ensure that all your needs are met.
