Wellmont Hospice House
A celebration of life
Recognition of a life-limiting disease
does not have to mean the end of hope. Through hospice care, patients –
and their loved ones – can make choices that celebrate life. They can
hold onto the hope of living as fully and comfortably as possible. And
they can live well, with grace and dignity, to the end.
Wellmont Hospice House was the first
freestanding hospice facility in Tennessee and offers short-term
inpatient care in a comfortable setting for persons with end-stage
illness. Patients may be admitted to the hospice house for acute
management of symptoms, for the final days of life or for respite care.
Respite is a level of care that provides relief for the weary caregiver.
The 12,000-square-foot hospice house is located by Bristol Regional Medical Center
and includes eight spacious patient rooms, each of which opens to a
private patio. There is a great room, chapel, family kitchen/dining area
and areas for privacy and quiet meditation.
