Palliative care is specialized medical care for residents with chronic or life-threatening illness, focused on aligning resident goals to care outcomes. Our specially trained palliative care team communicates with residents and their families to identify health care goals and preferences, manage symptoms such as pain, and make advanced care planning decisions about treatments. Palliative care is based on the needs and desires of the resident, not on the resident’s prognosis. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the resident and the family.
Each person in our secure memory care unit receives compassionate care and assistance to better enable them to live fully and at the highest functional level possible in a safe, comfortable, supportive environment.
For those who provide home care to a loved one with memory challenges, a respite program is available as well. For more information on this program, please contact Jennifer Lasman, Admissions Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"The medical and nursing care is excellent. The providers were very good about keeping me informed of what was going on with my mother and her care. Your nurse practitioner was excellent about listening and reacting to my concerns. We were very pleased with the vast majority of the staff and there were a couple who went above and beyond to meet my mother's needs and happiness."

"The atmosphere in the back was so nice; very peaceful and calming, even for visitors, with the fish pond, waterfall, day lilies and water fountains. The regular festivities and especially the weekly summer BBQ's were the best. Having a place for patients to have their hair and nails done, stocked kitchenettes, snack cart and lobby refreshments are all great ideas. The consideration of the patients was impressive."

"The caring, the knowledge and the kindness of the entire staff are what make Hanover Hill an outstanding facility. I was treated with genuine care and concern by every staff member. The meals are excellent and the physical surroundings are immaculate inside and beautiful outside. Therapy kept me moving and gave me great strategies to deal with doing things. "
