UPMC Hospice Services provide expert, compassionate care while managing end-of-life.

We tailor our hospice services to each person's needs and wishes.

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is not about dying. It's about helping the patient who no longer benefits from curative treatment to live life to its fullest until death.

Hospice treats the whole person, not just the disease.

It involves a team approach to:

  • Emotional and spiritual support
  • Expert medical care
  • Pain management

UPMC Home Hospice Services

Hospice care services include:

  • Bereavement outreach for all age groups
  • On-call support
  • Pain control
  • Personal care
  • Short-term care in a facility
  • Symptom management
  • Visits by the hospice team
  • Volunteer presence for companionship and respite

Our team provides care where the patient resides:

  • Home
  • Hospital
  • Inpatient hospice units
  • Skilled nursing or assisted living facilities

We also offer caregiver training to assist the family in also providing care.

  • Doctors
  • Home health aides
  • Nurses
  • Social workers
  • Spiritual care counselors and volunteers
