It’s about what’s right for your patients

Home Health & Hospice Care

Medical professionals who have chronically ill patients often have to navigate home health and hospice care options. At Amedisys, we focus on delivering the care that’s best for your patient, whether that is home-based care focused on empowering your patients to manage a chronic disease, palliative care for those with a terminal illness, or hospice care at the end of life. Our clinicians are trained to ensure your patient has the right health care support at every stage.

At Amedisys, our team of home health and hospice specialists offer expertise in managing the complex needs of your patients. If you have patients who could benefit from home healthcare and hospice to address chronic and terminal conditions such as CHF, cancer, COPD, diabetes and kidney disease, Amedisys can help.
