Winner of the Modern Healthcare and American Institute for Architects’ health-care facilities design award, Hospice LaGrange offers patients and families a warm and inviting environment. Hospice LaGrange is our inpatient facility that provides acute symptom management during times when 24-hour skilled care is needed. Hospice LaGrange is also where patients come for respite while caregivers rest and take care of themselves.
Hospice LaGrange has 16 private suites that open onto a terrace and overlook beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds. Our recent addition, a screened pavilion provides an outdoor gathering place for patients and families. There are no restrictions on visiting hours; family members may come and go as they please. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Hospice LaGrange welcomes families to visit their loved ones at any time.
All patient rooms have blinds and doors to ensure total privacy for patients as they receive care. Each room also opens through French doors to a patio and the beautiful grounds with many natural areas, trees and flowers provide a welcome respite for patients and families alike. For family or friends who choose to stay overnight, there are chairs in each room that fold out into a bed, and a family shower/ bathroom is available.
Each room opens into a large comfortably furnished living room with fireplace where friends and family may gather. Families may also enjoy a dining room, family kitchen, and patios off of the living rooms.
For those needing quiet time, there is a Meditation Room and a solace room.
The primary goal at Hospice LaGrange is to provide comfort for those in their final days. When the patient is in Hospice LaGrange a physician order set is available to initiate medications immediately. In addition, medications are stored in locked areas available at bedside for the patient so there is no delay in administration of medication. Patients are assessed regularly to determine when their pain is under control.
Hospice LaGrange operates around the clock with a staff of registered nurses on duty. Each RN has a team of patients they check on during hourly rounds. Safety and comfort are a priority.
The staff at Hospice LaGrange will provide emotional support for the family and assist them in any way possible to make phone calls, gather the person’s belongings, or anything else that will be helpful to them.
