Whether a doctor or case manager, when referring a patient to end-of-life care providers, we know it’s important to find an agency that is fully competent across all domains.

For an often brief window of treatment, hospice programs demonstrably improve physical and psychosocial symptoms, improve bereavement outcomes and the quality of life for family caregivers, and excel in patient, family and physician satisfaction. Our staff is highly trained and continually maintains their skills in dealing with end-of-life issues, life closure care and providing quality of life. During this most challenging time in life, they provide support and respect to a patient and his or her family and loved ones, honoring family, home culture, dignity, unique desires, goals and comfort needs, knowing that each person matters through every stage of life.
Home health and hospice care are not just our business—they’re the passion we’ve based our company on for the last five generations.
The OnPointe approach to this Medicare program is to provide a home health care team that includes a transitional coach and an on-staff nurse practitioner—something not all home health agencies can provide—to support the patient in developing four important self-care management skills
There are many home health care options available to your patients, but The OnPointe At Home difference is that we are equipped to handle a wide variety of service needs your patient may require, and we specialize in coordinating the proper care for your patients. That is because each nurse on our staff is trained to serve as a transitional coach whose most important role is to get to know the patient and their specific goals and needs to facilitate the best possible care for them.
OnPointe At Home is part of a network of caring professionals all working together towards one common goal—providing comprehensive and exceptional services to our patients. As part of that comprehensive network, providing excellent personal care is our priority, so we’ve built a team to better deliver that level of quality.
