Both programs deal with comfort, help for the caregivers and each patient’s right to make informed choices about their care and goals.

  • Hospice Touch: Program of special care that enables people with terminal illness to stay at home under the care of a loved one along with a team of medical professionals.
  • Life Choices Palliative Care: Program that assists patients with a serious illness whether the goal is cure or care. Inpatient and outpatient (home) services are provided by a team of medical professionals.
  • The Hospice Team: Medical services, emotional support and spiritual resources are provided by a team that may consist of a physician, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, nursing assistant, social worker, chaplain and volunteers.
  • Serenity House: Hospice and Palliative Care are offered from our 10,000 square-foot facility located at 601 Straw Street, Tomah. Includes state of the art equipment as well as rooms to care for up to eight Hospice patients.
  • Grief Support: Grief Support and Education series are held to help people deal with grief and loss.
  • Pet Therapy: Highly trained therapy dogs make visits to patients and their families, offering comfort and alleviating anxiety.
  • Massage Therapy: Part of Hospice Touch’s holistic approach to end of life comfort care. For many patients, Massage Therapy helps to manage pain, reduce stress/anxiety and improve sleep.
