In addition to our short term and long term care services, Keosauqua Health Care Center offers specialized services. At our facility we believe in a holistic approach to care by meeting the needs of our residents medically, socially and mentally. We understand there may be needs beyond short term or long term care services and offer specialized services to meet the individual needs. Our specialized services include hospice and respite services.
Knowing that a loved one is suffering from a debilitating illness or possibly even nearing the end of their life, it is often very difficult to deal with mentally, physically and spiritually. The staff at Keosauqua Health Care Center combines knowledge and empathy to help manage a patient’s symptoms and make the patient as comfortable as possible. Outside hospice providers may be able to offer further support if the Resident meets hospice criteria. Educating and comforting the family is also part of end of life care services provided by our staff.
If you or a loved one are in need of hospice services, please call the facility at (319) 293 -3761 or our Community Liaison Director at (319) 931-5469 or email her.
