What is a Hospice House?
There are times when a patient no longer needs to be in the hospital but for other reasons, is not suited to be at home. For that person, one of the Cornerstone Hospice houses is an option. Most likely, the Hospice House option is when a patient needs management of pain or symptoms around-the-clock.
A Cornerstone Hospice House enables patients with a limited life expectancy to live the final days of their lives in a comfortable, family-friendly environment. Patients receive the compassionate, individualized care they require in the comfort of a private room.
Patient rooms are designed to cater to the unique needs of each resident. You’ll notice extra wide doors to allow for movement of the bed or recliner.
Hospice House Locations
We have four (4) Hospice House locations in Central Florida. And, yes, there are times when a patient from outside Central Florida will desire to come to one of our hospice houses and that is acceptable. Cornerstone has Hospice Houses in Lake, Orange and Sumter counties. These houses are here, thanks to many donations from people in the community who value having such a place close to home.
