About Us - Hospice

Skilled and Compassionate Hospice Care

We offer the services and support you need when treatment is no longer the best option.

When you or someone you love has a life-limiting illness, it may be time to consider hospice care. Hospice is care beyond cure to help you or your loved one live each day to the fullest. Hospice may be appropriate if you or someone you love:

  • Has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness
  • Desires optimal pain and symptom management
  • Desires to remain at home
  • Decides curative treatment is no longer an option

Hospice Services

For more than 30 years, our hospice services have been serving the community by offering 24/7 physical, emotional and spiritual comfort to individuals, families and caregivers. Our hospice services are available in the setting of your choice- in your home, Geisinger Columbia Montour Hospice at Maria Hall, or in a skilled nursing or assisted living facility.

Many think that hospice is just for cancer patients; however, if you or someone you love suffers from cardiac and respiratory diseases, kidney disease, neurological illnesses including Alzheimer's disease, Lou Gehrig's disease, AIDS or cirrhosis of the liver that has progressed to a point where it's no longer treatable by standard means, hospice care can provide:

  • Care to help you stay comfortable and minimize pain
  • Consultation and care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Trained volunteers who provide companionship, assistance and support
  • Emotional and spiritual support for you and your family members, as requested
  • Bereavement services for family and caregivers

Hospice services are available from Geisinger Columbia Montour Hospice and SUN Home Health and Hospice.

In addition to providing hospice care, we offer Camp Courage, a twice-yearly bereavement camp for children and teens who have experienced the loss of a loved one.

Inpatient Hospice Services

For some patients, receiving hospice care at a "home away from home" may be the best option. These services are available through Geisinger Columbia Montour Hospice at Maria Hall.
