National Hospice & Palliative Care Month

Hospice

Bonner General Health Community Hospice is the only nonprofit hospice provider in northern Idaho.

We partner with our patients to walk with them on their personal journey with hope, support and the very highest quality of life.

Family members and loved ones receive counseling and bereavement care to help them cope with the many losses they face during the illness and with the grief they experience afterward.

Hospice services are paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance plans and HMOs.

 

Palliative Care

Palliative Care serves to improve quality of life by assisting an adult or child with a chronic or serious illness who is experiencing pain or other symptoms.

Palliative Care nurses specialize in comprehensive symptom management. The Palliative Care team focuses on physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical concerns, while supporting the patient and family.

The goal of Palliative Care is to help the person live life to the fullest with optimal comfort.
