Compassionate Care in a Comforting Space
Our hospice care team includes on-site doctors, nurses, clergy and specialists that promote both physical and spiritual well-being.
Hospice care is a form of therapy that provides pain management and comfort. It is implemented during the final stages of a terminal disease, and it is often given in a nursing home. Hospice care does not seek to extend or shorten life; instead, it focuses on improving the patient’s last few months, days and moments. Hospice care also supports grieving family members and friends.
Our kind and sensitive staff at Wesley Gardens Nursing Home provides a loving and compassionate environment for hospice treatment. With big hearts and servant-like attitudes, our staff does all they can to make hospice guests comfortable. This caring team of Rochester professionals includes on-site doctors, nurses, clergy and social workers who lead guests to physical, social and spiritual peace.
