AT Home Care & Hospice uses a team approach to assure continuity of care thoughout the hospice process.
One in three Americans is caring for a loved one with a serious illness. They find themselves looking for answers to important questions and making challenging decisions every day. It’s not something anyone should have to go through alone. AT Hospice is there to help families when they need it most.
AT Home cares for the terminally ill and helps patients live their final days to the fullest, as free as possible from disabling pain and mental anguish.

Treating the whole person includes helping to meet the spiritual needs of the patient and family. A chaplain treats the whole person — mind, body, and spirit. While assessing the patient’s and family’s spiritual needs, they provide direct counseling, consult with community clergy, and provide bereavement support.
The Medical Director leads the hospice care team in developing a plan of care to meet each patient’s specific needs, provides consultation to physicians regarding hospice care, and certifies terminal prognosis as part of the hospice eligibility process.
Music Therapy – Music is used throughout our lives to enrich our experiences. Music therapy is often used in the same way for people facing the last days of their lives. Music therapists are valued members of the Premier Hospice care team. They are professionally trained musicians who entertain patients and families. Whether it’s writing a song, learning to play guitar, or getting acquainted with the beautiful nuances of sound, music therapy can create a relaxing atmosphere and/or become a fulfilling diversion for a hospice patient. Our therapists work closely with each patient, helping them set and achieve musical goals.
Pet Therapy – There is a unique relationship that develops between a person and their pet. It could be because pets are loyal, affectionate, and comforting, or it could simply be that they are good listeners. Many people who receive end-of-life care appreciate the comfort of having one of our specially trained pets (especially dogs) by their sides. Pet therapy is a way for people to experience joy – an emotion that isn’t often associated with a life-limiting illness.
