Home Care & Hospice

Home health, palliative and hospice care

River Falls Area Hospital will help coordinate referrals to agencies that provide comfort, support and compassionate care for patients needing rehabilitation, advanced illness or end-of-life care and the loved ones caring for them.

Our mission is to help honor the wishes of patients and families and in doing so bring peace, dignity and comfort 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Patients have a choice as to which agency they use. However, choices may be limited by the breadth of services offered, insurance coverage and agency availability.

  • Home health care is appropriate for persons who prefer to stay in their home but are in need of ongoing skilled care that cannot be adequately provided by themselves, their family or friends.
  • Palliative care services are for patients and their families facing the problems associated with an advanced, progressive, chronic or incurable disease, yet who may be receiving aggressive treatment for their illness.
  • Hospice care is for anyone with a life-limiting illness and whose life expectancy is determined to be six months or less if the disease runs it natural course.
