In 2008 Help for Health opened a standalone hospice home, built through efforts from dedicated volunteers and community contributions over several years. A county-wide 1% capital tax was passed. The hospice home is an eight bed facility that serves hospice patients 24/7. Help for Health also serve hospice patients in their own homes. We are Medicaid and Medicare certified and accept most private insurances. No one is denied services due to inability to pay.
