At Gentiva Hospice, we improve the quality of life for patients facing terminal diagnoses while providing support for their loved ones.
We've been meeting this special need since 1996. Gentiva is one of the largest hospice providers in the country, offering personalized care and support to thousands of patients and their families across the country each day.
Our teams of caregivers consist of registered nurses, physicians, home healthcare aides, social workers, chaplains, bereavement counselors and trained volunteers. They provide palliative care to ease pain and discomforting symptoms. In addition, they provide psycho-social and spiritual support for both patients and their loved ones. Patients typically receive our services in their own homes, in nursing homes, or assisted living facilities. We also serve patients in hospitals and, in certain geographic locations, in Odyssey's own freestanding hospice facilities.
The commitment and spirit of Gentiva team members who provide care and support 24 hours a day/seven days a week is embodied in a simple phrase team members wear on their collars: "YCCOM: You Can Count on Me." Visit the Our Services web page for more information.
