Hospice of Rockingham County's
"We were very pleased with everything at the Hospice Home.
Opened in November of 2007, our state-of-the-art facility offers five beds for residential care as well as three beds for inpatient care. All rooms are private rooms and offer 24-hour nursing care, personal care services, counseling and chaplain support. Our facility is a unique resource available in Rockingham County.
Patients admitted to our facility must have a life-limiting illness with a prognosis of two months or less to live (in the opinion of their physician and HRC's medical director). The patient's main goal is comfort care and not aggressive treatment of their disease. In addition, Hospice Home patients can no longer be adequately cared for at home.
In general terms, inpatient beds are for those patients needing pain control and symptom management. The residential beds are for patients most likely in their last six to eight weeks of life who have an inadequate caregiver situation at home. Patients who stabilize and/or improve are provided assistance in making alternative arrangements. These arrangements may include moving to a long-term care facility or returning to their own homes. It is our hope that in most cases we can continue to serve the patient at either a local facility or their private residence.

When we opened our Hospice Home, a new way to remember friends and family was born. Just outside the front doors of the facility, there is now a memory garden made of attractive brick pavers. Donors may have a paver inscribed with up to three lines of text; each line may contain up to 18 letters, characters, or spaces. For additional information on ordering a paver, please see our Donor Opportunities pages. The paver garden is pictured below:
We often have civic clubs and church groups ask for a list of items they may collect and donate to our Hospice Home. Below is a partial list of items used in our Hospice Home. For a complete list, please call HRC at (336) 427-9022 or email us at email@example.com.
