and Southern Columbiana counties)
Our goal at Charity Hospice is to open a 12- room residential hospice facility
to serve patients in the Ohio Valley area.
The facility will be a comfortable home-like setting dedicated to caring for
who are unable to remain at home or who do not have caregivers available. With a growing elderly population and a low economy which causes our younger people to relocate, there is a growing void of available caregivers.
Hospice patients living at home will also have access to the facility for short-term care,
for acute pain or symptom management, or for caregiver respite.
Just as with Charity's home hospice services, admission to the residential facility will never be limited by a persons inability to pay.
