Hospice Care

Visiting Nurse Association of Cape Cod Hospice

Hospice care can enhance the quality of life of those facing terminal illness. VNA Hospice is a continuation of the excellent care patients have come to expect from the Cape’s largest healthcare system. Choosing VNA Hospice means you can keep your own trusted physician, while adding a team of nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, home health aides and volunteers to your community of caregivers.

VNA Hospice is the highest-rated hospice on Cape Cod and offers more services, both clinical and complementary, than any other hospice in the region.

When increased symptoms cannot be managed safely at home, we also provide short-term, acute inpatient care at McCarthy Care Center in Sandwich. This small facility offers private rooms and comfortable common spaces in a peaceful, home-like atmosphere, where family and friends are welcome to visit 24 hours a day. The center's skilled care team provides individualized care and emotional support to help hospice patients feel safe, comfortable and valued, with a goal of managing symptoms until a patient is stable. We also provide inpatient care to help with pain and symptom management at our hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, including nursing homes and long-term acute care centers.

VNA Hospice ensures a seamless transition to the next level of compassionate care, with the reassuring relationships and support of our team of professionals.
