Comfort and Quality Care at the End of Life
Hospice care in Eastern North Dakota.
Hospice care can help bring peace, comfort, and well-being to individuals and their families during the final days, weeks or months of life. We understand that this can be a trying time for both patients and their loved ones. Ethos Hospice is here to provide support and care, so you can focus on what matters most.
Each individual's hospice care team is carefully selected based on the unique needs of the person we are serving, as well as their family. Care teams may consist of a medical director, hospice aides, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, trained volunteers, therapists, and more. Patients and families of Ethos Hospice are never alone in their end-of-life journey. We have nurses on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so families always have support available whenever they may need it.
As a family member, I always felt supported and informed by their commitment to communication. This gave me comfort knowing my dad was always comfortable and cared for.

Is It Time for Hospice Care?
If you or your loved one has a life-threatening or terminal illness and a life expectancy of six months or less, then it may be time to consider hospice care. Other indicators might include:
Multiple medical diagnoses or chronic health problems.
Frequent emergency room visits or inpatient hospitalizations.
Chronic infections such as pneumonia or urinary tract infections.
A significant decline in physical or mental status.
Spends most of the day in bed or in a chair.
If you or a loved one is experiencing these symptoms, it may be time to consider hospice care. It is important to note that patients can never be denied care based on their coverage status or ability to pay.
Not only do we strive to provide the best possible quality care but we love doing it and it shows in our daily work. You will not only find the best teamwork (at Ethos) but also the most hard working professionals that impact so many of those lives in our community.
