PATIENT CARE

Our Services


In-Home Care

Northern Light Home Care & Hospice provides care in the patient’s place of residence when treatment is no longer desired or feasible. Services include nursing, social work, rehabilitation therapies, physician, spiritual counseling, home health aides, volunteers, and bereavement. For more information please call 800-757-3326.

 

General In-Patient Care

Hospice general in-patient care is pain control and symptom management provided in an in-patient care facility that cannot be managed in other settings. This care is intended to be short term.




Respite Care

Respite care provides relief for the primary caregiver. While the Aroostook House of Comfort is providing care for the hospice patient, the caregiver can rest, go to appointments, or attend special events. The caregiver can stay at the hospice house if desired and let the staff take care of their loved one.

Routine Care

This refers to general care of the hospice patient in their place of residence.







Paying for Hospice Care

Who Pays for Care?

Hospice care is a reimbursable medical expense and is covered by private insurers, Medicare, and Medicaid. Non-reimbursable costs not covered by patients may be supported by an endowment fund of the Aroostook Hospice Foundation. As insurance reimbursement can be confusing, we recommend a discussion with Northern Light Home Care & Hospice, 800-757-3326.

TESTIMONIALS

What People Say About Us


I have seen the compassionate care patient receive here. There is nothing but praise and gratitude from families that we now have this home atmosphere to treat all levels of patient suffering. The relief and stress are gone; families can relax and be there to support their loved one.



Nancy T. O’Neill, MD, FAAFP

The nurses, doctor, and volunteers treated us with the way you would want to be treated and our loved one was treated with gentle care and loving attention.  The facility was so well planned, giving families room to spend with a loved one, and spaces for a few minutes of quiet time. We are so thankful for the experience.
