For terminally ill patients seeking palliative treatment, Cascade Health Solutions Hospice offers supportive care which focuses on quality of life through pain and symptom management. Hospice offers physical, emotional, social and spiritual comfort to both the patient and family.
Most of our services are provided in the home, since many terminally ill patients prefer receiving care in the comfort and familiarity of their home and with involvement of friends and family. If a patient needs to move to a nursing or foster home, Cascade Hospice makes every effort to continue care in the new location.
Grief Support Groups are offered at the following times:
Tuesdays from 1:00-2:30 pm at Cascade Health Solutions in the McKenzie Room
Thursday evenings from 7-8:30pm at McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center in the Willamette Room

Hospice services are usually covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. Our experts can help the family and patient understand what services are covered. As a non-profit organization, we provide services regardless of the ability to pay. This is made possible by generous community support and donations.
To be eligible a patient must have a terminal illness and decide not to seek further curative treatment. The caregiver is an essential part of hospice care. A caregiver is a relative, friend, or paid attendant who assumes responsibility and works cooperatively with the Hospice team.
