Home Hospice in Brooklyn, NY – Calvary@Home

Calvary’s Hospice services are designed for patients who want to spend their last days at home. Our home hospice care provides families and loved ones an opportunity to enjoy time together at home and in familiar environments.

During his last days, only Calvary Hospital was able to relieve our son Greg’s cancer pain with peace and dignity.
No parent should ever have to bury their child. But on October 14, 2014, our son Greg, only 35, lost his battle with cancer. Courageous throughout his entire life, with a love for adventure and travel, it was heartbreaking to see him suffer. But thanks to you and your expert staff, you relieved Greg’s physical pain, and the emotional pain of our entire family, as well. For Greg’s final week, our family alternated our overnight stays, so we would always be with him. In fact, his hospital room became a sacred place for us, filled with peace and serenity. Your combination of professional expertise and compassion was remarkable. We have never seen such genuine care and concern. Believe us, we know. I’m a physical therapist, and my wife is a registered nurse. Greg lived out his final days with dignity and peace, in a place like no other. –Thank you Calvary Hospital.

Levels of Care Home Setting:

We care for patients in the familiar, comfortable surroundings of their home, whether it’s a private residence, nursing facility or assisted living facility.

At our Bronx Campus, Westchester County residents can receive short-term pain and symptom management care in an inpatient setting.

Calvary Hospital has developed a continuum of care that meets the needs of patients facing the final stages of life and does so with the same passion and vigor found at any curative Hospital.

If you or a loved one is facing the end stages of a life-limiting illness we hope you will contact us and learn more about CalvaryCare®.
