Services at Rock River Hospice & Home

End of life care requires compassion and an experienced team of specialized caregivers. Rock River Hospice & Home offers both, wherever you or your loved one needs care.
Hospice is available in many settings, with the hallmark for hospice care in the home of the patient, among family and friends. However, there are times when a caregiver is unable to care for the patient, or there is no caregiver or family residing close. And, at times, there are patients who simply have no family at all.

Rock River Hospice & Home can provide the specialized care you trust in our 6-bed inpatient hospice home where you or your loved one can rest easy, knowing everything will be taken care of so you can focus on enjoying your time together.

“There has been an urgent need in our community for dedicated, intensive end of life care for those patients and families who need more than in-home hospice care. The hospice home was that next step for Rock River Hospice & Home to branch out to meet the needs of the Sauk Valley.”

-Dr. Jason Reter,
Medical Director for Rock River Hospice & Home
