Families that face the death of a loved one are often unprepared for the emotional and physical stress associated with an illness of a limited life expectancy. Sharon Regional Health System's hospice and palliative care services has provided support to family members as they participate in caring for their dying loved ones since 1984.
Through visits, the Sharon Regional hospice team plans a program of care committed to keeping patients comfortable while maintaining the highest possible physical, emotional and spiritual quality of life. Pain and symptom control are a major focus of this plan. These efforts enable the terminally ill to remain home for as long as possible.
Sharon Regional Health System's hospice and palliative care program is licensed by the state Department of Health, is Medicare certified, and is accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP). The program is a member of the PA Hospice Network.
