Charitable, nonprofit hospice care

Genesis Hospice is a charitable hospice that has been providing compassionate, end-of-life care for more than 35 years. We are the only nonprofit hospice in the area offering comprehensive care including in-home, Morrison House, nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Who qualifies for hospice care?

You or a loved one may be eligible for hospice care during the end stages of a life-limiting illness such as:

  • AIDS
  • ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic respiratory illness
  • Heart failure
  • Liver or kidney failure
  • Parkinson’s disease


Care when and where you need it

Receive hospice care anywhere you call home, including a family member’s house, a nursing home or an assisted living residence. The hospice team will visit regularly and a hospice nurse is available 24/7 to answer questions or assist with medical concerns.

If you need more care than can be provided at home, ask about staying at the Morrison House.

You may receive hospice care for an unlimited amount of time, depending on the course of the illness. If you believe hospice is a good option now, but change your mind later, you may stop receiving hospice services at any time. Resuming hospice care is as easy as a phone call to our office.


Choosing a hospice provider

We understand the challenges you may be facing when you need to consider hospice care for your loved one. How do you know when a company is local? What companies are non-profit, and which ones are for-profit? Does every hospice have its own inpatient unit if needed?

These are just a few of the questions you may be asking. You might not even know what to ask. Here are some resources you may find helpful as you research hospice care.
