Hospice

Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital provides emotional, spiritual and physical comfort to patients with life-limiting illnesses during the final stages of life. We are committed to providing personalized service and a coordinated plan of care when medical care cannot offer a cure.

We offer complementary and alternative services to help terminally ill patients retain control and quality of life during their remaining days. Hospice care is for patients with a life expectancy of six months or less and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, wherever a patients needs care—at home, in assisted living facilities or in the hospital.

Hospice enables you to give your loved one the highest possible level of physical comfort and dignity at the end-of-life by providing assistance, medicines, equipment and education to you and your family. Services include, but are not limited to spiritual support, massage therapy and bereavement support. Through these comfort measures, we help reduce pain and care for immediate physical needs, enabling your loved to enjoy time with you and your family.

Our interdisciplinary team of specialized physicians, nurses, social workers and other staff are knowledgeable in hospice care and procedures. Through our partnership with the Indiana University Health School of Medicine, we have access to continuing developments in the ability of medicine to relieve pain and symptoms for those with life-limiting illnesses.
