We strive to make every day matter, make every day comfortable, and make every day as joyful as possible for our patients who are living with a terminal or life limiting illness. Our primary focus is on managing the patient’s pain and troubling symptoms, while providing the emotional and spiritual support needed to help them complete their life comfortably. Our hospice team, which includes our Medical Director, Registered Nurses, Home Health Aides, Therapists, Social Workers, Chaplain, Volunteers, and Bereavement Coordinator meet regularly to ensure seamless communication, coordination of care, and that the needs of the whole family are being addressed.
Knute Nelson Hospice provides care wherever the individual calls home –whether that’s in a private residence, assisted living community, adult foster care, or skilled care center. You can expect good communication between our cargiving team and yours, to make sure that the patient receives the best possible care.
Hospice services are covered by Medicaid and Medicare, Veterans’ benefits plans, and almost all private insurance policies. No patient is denied care based on inability to pay or coverage status.
