Duke HomeCare and Hospice
Duke HomeCare & Hospice works closely with your physician to provide comprehensive, individualized care in the comfort of your home or at our inpatient hospice facility. Our team of nurses, therapists, social workers, counselors, and chaplains helps you and your family manage advanced medical conditions, whether you are recovering from treatment, need ongoing therapy, or require end-of-life support.
Home Health Care
We offer a broad range of home health care services, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy; geriatric care; pain management; and wound care. If you want to stay at home while treating a life-limiting illness, our Bridge Program will bring Home Health Care members to you.
Our infusion team comes to your home to administer intravenous medications, including antibiotics and chemotherapy, to children and adults. Our nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, and patient services coordinators work under the direction of your doctor to monitor your needs and treatment.
Our palliative care teams provide an extra layer of support to people facing serious life-threatening illnesses. Our program provides evidence-based, compassionate, and holistic care to patients and their loved ones in an array of settings.
Duke Hospice meets your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs at home, in a hospital, or at our inpatient care facility. Our team of caregivers — nurses, social workers, chaplains, and counselors — provides comfort-oriented care. We help you and your caregivers manage terminal illness effectively and face end-of-life with dignity and comfort.
Our bereavement services program is available to support Triangle residents coping with the loss of a loved one. We offer free, short-term individual grief counseling, support groups, and grief workshops, as well as programs tailored to children and teens.
