Will someone come and live with me to take care of all of my needs?

The intent of Hospice care is to complement the patient’s existing support system with visits from Hospice personnel and volunteers at various frequencies. Hospice is not designed to provide 24-hour care or meet all patient care needs. However, if the patient qualifies, 24-hour care is provided at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House.
