Sentara Hospice House butterfly

A place of compassion, comfort, and dignity

Transitioning to end of life is difficult, but having a supportive team and environment to enjoy precious time with family makes the journey easier. At Sentara Hospice House, the burden and anxiety of providing care is lifted from the family members, allowing them to be available for the emotional support of their loved one and each other.

Sentara Hospice House is the only facility of its kind in the Hampton Roads area. This 12-bed inpatient hospice facility was created to meet the growing needs of the community for respite and end-of-life care. From nursing services and social work to volunteer and bereavement services, we offer the same full range of inpatient hospice services as currently offered in the hospital.

About Sentara Hospice House
Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art Telehealth, a two-way audiovisual system for interacting with the Medical Director when he is unable to be at the patient’s bedside. This system provides guidance and reassurance for every patient and their family.

The Sentara Hospice House provides a team of nurses, doctors, medical social workers, volunteers, aides, chaplains and bereavement counselors. Our specially trained professionals provide comfort and 24-hour care, pain and symptom management, and overall physical and emotional support in a home-like setting for patients and caregivers.

Are visitors welcome?
Our goal is to provide comfort and dignity and emphasize quality of life for the whole person and their family so they may live every moment to the fullest. Family and loved ones are welcome at the Sentara Hospice House and can rest during the day or evening in specially designated rooms. The facility is complimented by beautifully landscaped gardens for patient and family enjoyment and relaxation. The Hospice House also features: 
Family lounge 
Family den and kitchen 
Family outdoor sitting area

Who is eligible?
Sentara Hospice House is open to patients with life-limiting conditions who qualify for inpatient hospice services. Extensive medical and nursing care is provided for treatment of uncontrollable symptoms. Once the symptoms have stabilized, the patient will be transitioned to the home or previous setting – where they feel the most comfortable.

Respite services are also available for current Hospice patients.
