McLean Hospice provides care wherever our patients call home: the house they’ve lived in for decades, a skilled nursing center, an assisted living facility or anywhere else they find the greatest comfort.
At McLean, we help preserve each patient's dignity, show our patients the respect they deserve and provide high-quality, compassionate care.
Hospice care is a covered benefit under Medicare, Medicaid and many insurance plans. We provide care to those who qualify for hospice services regardless of the ability to pay or insurance coverage.
McLean Hospice prides itself on creating order out of chaos and reducing fear, so that your hopes, whether they be for freedom from pain, resolution of conflicts or creation of good memories, may be realized.
We exist in the hope and belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and families can attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for life’s end that is satisfactory to them. A majority of staff is either board certified or Masters prepared.
