Hospice care is primarily provided in a patient's or caregiver's home, however, there are some individuals who do not have a home environment appropriate for hospice care, or lack the family or friends necessary to provide 24/7 care in a home environment. Additionally, some hospice patients need around-the-clock medical attention during medication adjustments or for symptom management. In response to these needs, Niagara Hospice House was built in 2007 in the town of Lockport.

Niagara Hospice House is Niagara County's only residential hospice house, providing services to individuals with increased care-giving needs or an insufficient caregiver system at home. The residential wing consists of 10 suites specifically designed for patients who need residential hospice care.

The general in-patient (GIP) wing has 10 suites designed for patients needing short-term medical monitoring and symptom management.

Each suite is designed with patient and family in mind with a sitting area and easy-chair sleeper. Each family also has access to gathering rooms, fireplaces, a chapel, kitchen and the Niagara Hospice Memorial Gardens and Pavilion.

Hospice House Family Testimonials:

“The staff was very compassionate and willing to do anything to make my father and everyone else comfortable. My father was admitted four times and they helped him find his way back and be comfortable. You won’t find better care. After home, it’s the next best place.” -- Kirsty, Sanborn

“Hospice House staff was very caring and treated us as people rather than symptoms. They helped transition my father from general inpatient to residential after a very intense situation in which he improved unexpectedly. They know how to help in the worse situations and we never felt alone. The way they approach it really puts a positive spin on a very scary, uncertain situation.” -- Corey, Niagara County native living in Rochester
