Perinatal Support


Modern technology and prenatal testing have made it possible to know more about babies before they are born than ever before. But when the results of these tests are not positive news, parents are faced with a difficult decision – carrying the child to term or terminating the pregnancy.


Parents who decide to continue their pregnancies are not alone. Hospice Care Network offers a Perinatal Hospice Program designed to provide comprehensive support from the time of diagnosis through the birth and into the postpartum period.

Hospice Care Network can help by:

  • Working with parents and other health care providers to create a birth plan that includes the family’s preferences for interventions for the baby and involvement of the family
  • Assisting in ways to celebrate and welcome the baby
  • Addressing the emotional needs and concerns of parents and siblings
  • Providing comfort care for the baby, including medications, equipment and physical therapy
  • Planning final arrangements, memorial services and goodbyes
  • Providing bereavement support for all family members and other caregivers

We Protect Patient Privacy In Every Way!
HIPAA - Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (1996) creates national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information. This law was enacted to protect patient privacy and improve the security, accuracy and integrity of the electronic transmission of health information. HIPAA provisions affect providers (that means Hospice Care Network), payers, and all other entities that share in the exchange of health information. This new law requires that a privacy notice be given to all patients and makes it illegal to release health information to inappropriate parties, or fail to adequately protect health information from release. If violated, civil and criminal penalties can be incurred.
My family and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to each and everyone of the wonderful people who cared for my husband. He was always treated with devoted and kind hands and was made as comfortable and pain free as possible.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for getting my mom into the Hospice INN. I had no idea there was such a beautiful place filled with beautiful, compassionate and caring people. My husband and I, and many members of my family were in complete awe at the care my mother received.
