Helping patients through their end of life journey.

When a cure is not possible for individuals with a life-limiting illness, inpatient hospice care may be the best option. Logansport Memorial Hospital provides inpatient care to help patients and their loved ones through the end of life with dignity and hope.

Logansport Memorial Hospital has two hospice rooms on the medical/surgical floor. Made possible through the generosity of the Logansport Memorial Hospital Foundation, these rooms were specifically designed for end-of-life care. Each room has family accommodations, including a kitchenette, comfortable furnishings and a private restroom. These rooms are served by Registered Nurses with hospice training who manage the established plan of care for hospice services, including frequent communication with the patient's doctor and hospice team. Chaplain services are also avaliable 24 hours a day in the quiet setting of each room.  

Why inpatient hospice?

Inpatient hospice care benefits patients who have acute care needs and may not be able to travel to their doctor's office any longer. Inpatient services also provide more effective pain control or acute and chronic symptom management. Families also benefit from 24-hour attention and care.

Cancer
End-stage heart, lung, kidney or liver disease
