Hospice Care

To meet the needs of our terminally ill nursing home residents, St Ann’s partners with Licensed and Certified Hospice Agencies to provide care that assures comfort and dignity at the end of life.

Families, residents and patients in all of our communities have the right to choose the Hospice Agency they want to provide their care. St. Ann’s has relationships with both Visiting Nurse Service Hospice and Lifetime Hospice. Both agencies provide “routine hospice home care” to people in their homes; that includes independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing.

St. Ann’s also provides long-term hospice and palliative care in our Leo Center for Caring, a dedicated 10-bed unit located in the Wegman Transitional Care Center building on our Irondequoit campus.

Our goal is to create an environment of warmth and caring, helping patients complete their lives with dignity, meaning and peace. Our specially trained clinical staff is highly skilled at providing palliative (comfort-oriented) care.
