Indiana University Health Arnett Hospital offers comfort to patients during the final stages of life. We are committed to providing personalized service and a coordinated plan of care so terminally ill patients can have better quality of life during their remaining days.
The main goal of hospice is to provide compassionate care that meets the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of patients at the end of life. The integrated, family-centered team of trained professionals at IU Health Arnett Hospital delivers expert assistance during this time of transition.
Hospice care is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to anyone facing a life-limiting illness with a life expectancy of six months or less. We attend to people wherever they reside—at home, in assisted living facilities or in the hospital.
Our multidisciplinary team of specialized physicians, nurses, social workers and other trained staff provides complete end-of-life care, while promoting wellness and respecting individual needs and concerns. We meet the needs of patients and families through continuous assessment and frequent communication between clinical staff and a patient’s primary care physician.
Hospice nurses consult with each family on the patient’s medication needs and can deliver their medicines and therapies directly. Hospice services include alternative services such as music therapy, massage therapy and art therapy. Throughout it all, your loved one’s comfort is our utmost goal and your family’s preferences guide our care.
IU Health Arnett Hospital Hospice physicians use board-reviewed clinical research regarding end-of-life care to guide our treatments. Our dedication to research advances knowledge and procedures for hospice care.
