Monmouth Medical Center- Center of Hospice Care
Located within the hospital, the Center for Hospice Care at Monmouth Medical Center exists in the hope that through the efforts of a caring community, patients and families may attain physical, mental and spiritual peace. We work as partners with patients, their families and physicians in this special kind of caring - and sharing in the belief that caring and closeness are equally important in all stages of life.
Our goal is to provide patients with the highest-possible level of support to relieve or decrease pain, or other symptoms, and provide as much quality time as possible with family and friends.
Each of the unit's patient rooms offers homelike surroundings, providing patients and families with a quiet, comfortable setting to spend time together, yet knowing that direct medical care is available anytime it may be needed. Home-based hospice services also are available through the program. Family members are permitted to stay around the clock if they so desire, and family areas away from the patient's room are also provided.
