Imagine entering a safe haven. You close the door and the outside world shuts off…, and you sense that in this place your loved one will be comfortable.
The soon-to-be-opened Agapé Hospice House will be a place where a family can celebrate the life of a loved one, where a person can restore and recharge his/her spirit, and where family and loved ones will be embraced by the professional caregivers. At Agapé Hospice house you can share a meal and socialize with other families facing similar circumstances or you can engage in prayer or quiet contemplation. But most of all, Agapé Hospice House will provide an environment where your family and loved one will experience unconditional love, compassion, and dignity.
Agapé Hospice House will be opening early summer 2011 in Columbia, SC. Agapé Hospice is one of the largest quality hospice providers in the state of South Carolina. The Agapé Hospice House will be designed to provide the highest level of care, compassion, and spiritual support available and will begin a new standard of hospice care in the Midlands.
Agapé Hospice understands that there comes a time during end-stage of life when a patient’s medical needs exceed what family caregivers can be expected to administer. This is the point where in-home care is no longer practical for the patient or primary caregiver. The team approach utilized by staff of Agapé Hospice House will combine the professional skills of doctors, nurses, social workers and chaplains who will be available 24 hours per day. The effect of this approach will wrap your loved one in a blanket of care at his/her most critical time of need. The burden and anxiety of providing care is completely lifted from the family members, allowing them to be 100% available for the emotional support of their loved one.
