Nemaha County Home Health & Hospice


Hospice Care

     It seems with aging comes more and more loss of control over our bodies and our lives. The ultimate loss of control comes when one hears the words "you have a terminal disease and not long to live".
At Nemaha County Home Health & Hospice, we understand that feeling. While we cannot heal you, our goal is to enable you and your family to regain some control and become active partners in your care and your life in your last days.

Who We Are

     Our staff offers gentle loving skilled care when healing is no longer possible. We assist family members in managing the practical details and emotional challenges of caring for a dying loved one. We companion survivors through their bereavement.
     Clients can rest assured that our staff is extremely well qualified with a combined 135 years of professional experience. Our staff includes a Medical Director, Registered Nurses, Home Health Aides, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Social Workers, Spiritual Support, and Volunteer help. Every professional staff member is licensed by the state.
     Our focus is to keep patients as alert and comfortable as possible in a familiar environment surrounded by family and friends. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Services provided:

  • Basic medical care with a focus on pain and symptom control.
  • Medical supplies and equipment as it relates to the terminal condition.
