Hospice Care

Halstad Living Center is served by Hospice of the Red River Valley. Our joint philosophy, is that life is much more than physical health; it also includes the health of the human spirit. When physical health begins to fail, the nurturing of the spirit becomes critical for maintaining the dignity of the individual.

Hospice is a philosophy of care focused on comfort and quality of life at the end of life. It is designed to treat the whole person emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically by providing comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. As part of the process, family members also receive care and support - all provided by a team of specially trained professionals and volunteers.

Hospice of the Red River Valley offers a full spectrum of care designed to respect the dignity of the individual. Our care is skilled and compassionate in its delivery with the goal of providing comfort and freedom from pain. At the same time, it aims to provide the patient with as much independence and control as possible, for as long as possible.

Hospice partners with patients and their families to customize a care plan as it relates to the terminal illness. Our team is responsible for knowing and understanding the full spectrum of the patient’s entire medical circumstances and its management and helping the individual and their family remain comfortable and well cared-for throughout their Hospice experience. Although Hospice services can be provided on an intermittent basis, staff is available around the clock, seven days per week to address urgent needs.

Hospice touches many lives as they near the end, with compassion and respect, helping people live well until they die with dignity. If you or a loved one are facing end of life issues, call Halstad Living Center for a full explanation of the care and services we provide 218-456-2105.
