Riceland Hospice is one of the few locally owned and operated hospices that are Joint Commission accredited. Rigorous national standards ranging from direct care quality to complaint response are applied by the Joint Commission to any facility wanting to be part of their certification program. Riceland is honored to have been approved multiple times by the Joint Commission, and we strive when medical care cannot offer a cure, that our hospice provides a compassionate method of caring for those who have life-limiting conditions. Hospice care is palliative with an emphasis on pain and symptom control, so the patients may live their lives as comfortable as possible.
Why Choose Riceland Hospice?
Our philosophy is to assist the primary caregiver in providing the best care for their loved one. Most hospice patients receive care at home while an inter-disciplinary team (physicians, nurses, social workers, aides, chaplain, and bereavement coordinator) provides treatment. The team provides medical care for the patient, as well as support for the patient’s loved ones.
At Riceland Hospice, we believe in honoring patient choices and that choosing hospice increases the quality of life. We believe in having the best possible communication with the patient and the patient’s loved ones. Our informed professional staff is available with personalized care for each patient that insures dignity, pain and symptom control, and respect. Riceland’s services provide palliative care and support to a patient and family at a very difficult time. We are concerned with the quality of life and strive in every way to support both patient and family.
