Hospice Care

Compassion and comfort for loved ones and families

Our focus is on maintaining your loved one’s personal dignity, responding to individual needs and concerns, providing comfort care, and offering spiritual and emotional support that addresses the whole person.

We ensure that every detail is handled by an experienced team you can trust. Our hospice care program is offered through Fellowship Home Care and Hospice throughout New Jersey, and provided by a caring team responsive to your loved one’s changing needs. We provide comfort and care to reduce pain and help your loved one live life as fully as possible.

Hospice services, including palliative care and end-of-life care, are provided at Riverwalk Village, in the person’s own home, an Active Adult Community, Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing setting.

Debunking misconceptions about hospice

  • Hospice is not just for the last few days or weeks of life. You should ask your loved one’s doctor whether a curative treatment will work and what impact it will have.
  • Hospice is not a “place” — it’s a type of care. Hospice care is typically delivered in the person’s own home, in Assisted Living or in Skilled Nursing.
  • The person need not be homebound to receive hospice care — the goal is to remain as independent as possible.
  • Hospice is not a financial burden — services are covered by Medicare Part A, Medicaid, and many private insurance providers.
  • Hospice will not shorten life — it seeks to improve the patient’s quality of life and allow dying to take place naturally and without pain.
