HopeHealth, formerly known as Hospice & Palliative Care of Cape Cod, has been enhancing the quality of life for people experiencing serious illness and loss for more than thirty years. Today, the non-profit organization delivers a wide range of medical care, care management and support services throughout Eastern Massachusetts. The HopeHealth family of services includes: Hope Hospice; Hope Palliative Care; Hope HouseCalls; Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services; Hope Care for Kids; Hope Community Care; and education and training for professionals, caregivers and the community.
Through a patient-centered and coordinated model of care, Hope Hospice’s care team attends to the unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each patient and family in any setting. Hope Hospice serves all who are eligible for hospice care, regardless of the complexity or cost of their care. When acute symptoms cannot be safely managed at home, Hope Hospice provides inpatient care at McCarthy Care Center, the area’s only specially-licensed, hospice inpatient unit providing short-term acute care for symptom management and stabilization.
When getting to the doctor’s office is difficult or even impossible, Hope HouseCalls brings compassionate, comprehensive physician care to the home. Our primary care physicians provide high-quality, non-emergency medical care and personal attention in the convenience and comfort of the patient’s home. By seeing patients where they live, Hope HouseCalls can assess and monitor ongoing health issues and learn more about the patient’s daily life to positively affect their well-being.
