In-Home End of Life Care

Highly engaged, physician care and personalized family support to ensure that dignity, comfort and peace of mind are prioritized throughout the journey.

When a loved one is dying, especially when things are changing quickly, and complex decisions need to be made, it can be scary and overwhelming.

Standard hospice, which is covered by insurance, is currently the only model of End of Life Care that most people are familiar with. While hospice provides significant value for many people, the quality of care can be inconsistent and is limited by insurance regulations in its ability to fully meet the needs of patients and families. As a result, many patients and families experience frustration, fear, and overwhelm, which adds to the struggle at the most vulnerable time of their lives.

Who can you turn to for answers? Who will take the time to really understand your needs and concerns? Who will think outside the box to help you find solutions?

This is where Empowered Endings comes in – as an adjunct to, or a replacement for, hospice care. Our unique Doctor & Doula Model of Care is designed to cater to each patient’s individual needs while also providing robust companionship and guidance for their families’ emotional, grief, and spiritual needs.

Our committed and compassionate team of experts creates a village of care around each patient and family we serve–orchestrating, smoothing the way, and allowing for the most peaceful and gentle end of life journey possible for all.

Bob and Elizabeth are just very gentle souls. There was no pressure and shared with my wife Rachel and I the many options you have to consider. It felt just like someone putting their arms around you.

[Dr. Bill Parker]

For us as a family, Bob and Elizabeth gave us the tranquility and support that we needed at that moment. It made a total difference in the way my Dad passed away. It allowed me to be the daughter and not a nurse.
