Hospice House – Bedford

For over 30 years, Centra Hospice has been the community’s non-profit hospice, providing the highest quality care to our patients and loved ones. We are pleased to offer a residential setting for patients and families at Centra Bedford Hospice House located at 1025 Turning Point Road.  

WHAT IS HOSPICE HOUSE?

Hospice House provides a healing environment to allow a person and their loved ones to spend their time in the most meaningful way possible when their care cannot be managed at home.  Hospice House provides expert 24-hour care to patients and support to family members.

WHO USES HOSPICE HOUSE?

Hospice House is for a seriously ill person who is enrolled in Centra Hospice or eligible for hospice care and is unable to remain in their own home for end-of-life care. For example, patients under hospice care who can no longer be cared for at home such as an elderly person whose spouse is unable to provide such care, a person living alone without family nearby or younger patients who don’t want their young children to experience death in the family home.

STAYING AT HOSPICE HOUSE

Hospice House is not a long-term solution. Although specific to a patient’s needs, most stays at Hospice House will typically not last beyond three months.

FOR LOVED ONES

Hospice House is designed to be a comforting environment for both the patient and loved ones. Knowing that your loved one is being cared for with expertise and compassion allows family members to rest and have time to take care of personal business.
