Home Health and Hospice
Nothing promotes health and healing – while maintaining independence and dignity – more than being in a comfortable and familiar environment.
Through Beth Israel Lahey Health at Home, you’ll find the solutions that allow you to recover and restore your health in the very place you feel most comfortable – your own home.
By partnering with physicians, hospitals and skilled facilities, we help you to make a seamless transition back home, in the event you have been hospitalized. We work with an experienced team of nurses, therapists (physical, occupational and speech), medical social workers and home health aides to devise a care plan that is tailored for you and your home health care needs.

Palliative Care and Hospice
We offer programs to meet the complex needs of patients and their families coping with advanced illness. These programs include palliative care, bridge-to-hospice, hospice at home and residential hospice at the Sawtelle Family Hospice House. The unique aspect of our care is that the bridge and hospice programs are coordinated by the hospice team, which assures that patients receive care from a care team with extensive experience and training in managing symptoms. This care team remains the same as patients transition to different levels of care.
