Home Health & Hospice Care
Spectrum Home Health & Hospice Care provides quality care that comes to you, in the privacy and comfort of your own home. We coordinate medical care with community physicians, families and multiple service agencies, and provide a personalized care plan for every patient.
If you need help recovering from an illness, injury or surgery, we can provide the expert care you need to recover in the comfort of your home. When a cure is no longer the goal, our hospice services allow patients with a life-limiting illness and their families to take a proactive step to ensure that needs and wishes are embraced, and that all the care possible will be given to manage symptoms and optimize quality of life.
We provide Spectrum Home Health & Hospice Care throughout Hampden County, and our team includes Spanish-speaking care providers. We can accept patients within one hour of new service requests, and are able to start services within 24 hours.
