Beacon Hospice-Rhode Island
Beacon Hospice, an Amedisys company, is a community of caregivers dedicated to excellence in end-of-life care for the patient and their families. This is accomplished by respecting patient choice, providing comfort and promoting dignity.
What is Hospice?
Hospice is a philosophy of care that is designed to help reduce both the physical pain and emotional suffering of patients during their final stages of illness. Contrary to what many people think, hospice is not a physical place. It is a service that comes to wherever people live, whether that's an assisted living facility, a skilled nursing facility, a hospital or at home.
At the heart of hospice is the belief that every person has the right to die pain free and with dignity and that families deserve care and support as well. Because everyone's situation is unique, Beacon Hospice creates a personalized plan of care for each and every patient, tailored to that patient's specific needs.
