Hospice care is a specialty within health care focusing exclusively on care of the dying and those who love them.
Hospice care is for anyone with a life expectancy of six months or less. Our services enhance the care provided by specialists in other areas of medicine.
As a health care professional, you play an important role helping individuals under your care and their families make the best choices possible, including hospice care when the time is right.
Hospice of the Red River Valley provides services wherever patients are—including private homes, assisted living and long-term care facilities or hospitals. Our care enhances, but does not replace, the care provided by health care professionals in these settings.
