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.
