Many people in Phoenix ask us, “What is hospice?” As you care for your seriously ill loved one, do you ever wish you had a medical team easily available to answer your caregiving questions? That’s what hospice care is, and more.
Home visits from a nurse to help manage difficult symptoms
A certified nursing assistant to help with bathing and grooming
Medical equipment and some prescriptions to help with comfort care
A team of professionals to provide emotional and spiritual support
Do not let concern about finances keep you from these services! Payment for hospice is covered 100% by Medicare and Medicaid. There is no charge to the patient or family. Hospice is frequently covered 100% by private insurance as well. No one will be denied hospice care because of an inability to pay.
Hospice care means staying comfortable
Our goal at hospice is to make each day the best day it can be for persons with incurable conditions. We add life to days by focusing on comfort care. This allows your loved one to be free from pain and spend time doing those things that give them the most joy. With an emphasis on quality of life, our team of hospice care professionals comes to the home to assist you with medical, emotional, and spiritual well being.
You are part of the team At Solace Hospice, families are an active member of the care team. You have day-to-day insights that are invaluable for keeping your loved one comfortable. We develop the plan of care in partnership with you. We make recommendations for your loved one based on what we think they need. But we also incorporate your suggestions, including your needs and what you think will work given family resources and capabilities.
Home is where your loved one lives
No matter where your loved one lives, members of our team can come to the bedside. Including skilled nursing facilities or care homes. That’s hospice care at home.
A nurse will visit based on your individualized care plan. The nurse can answer questions. They may recommend changes in medication. As your case manager, the nurse can also order equipment or supplies.
There are other members of our team who may come to the home:
a medical social worker
a nondenominational chaplain
These professionals offer important advice and support to patients. They also are available to support family and friends who are providing day-to-day care.
We even have specially trained hospice care volunteers. They can stay and visit with the patient for a few hours each week so family caregivers can get some respite and take a much-needed break such as going to the grocery store or a medical appointment for themselves.
Our team at Solace Hospice is trained to relieve pain and discomfort.
The definition of “pain” is very broad in hospice. It may include physical, emotional, and spiritual distress.
As a result, our team is holistic in its approach.
Medical options. For many patients the best remedy is medication. If so, we will ask the doctor for a prescription. The Solace team will work with the physician to manage your pain symptoms.
Nonmedical approaches. Many times the problem can best be fixed by changing sleeping position or modifying diet. Other times the healing happens by talking through an emotional issue. Or gaining clarity about a difficult family concern.
Equipment and supplies. If medical equipment is required to keep your loved one comfortable, it can be ordered. Oxygen for shortness of breath. A hospital bed for safety and ease of care. Prescriptions related to the diagnosis as well as comfort medication. These services at provided at no charge to the patient.
Everyone feels better after a bath or shower. Shampooed hair, a good shave and a little makeup can do wonders for self-esteem! Our certified nursing assistants come to the home regularly to provide a bath or shower, change the sheets, and help your loved one stay clean and fresh.
As the person you care for spends more time in bed and is less able to walk, our certified nursing assistants become even more of a blessing. They are skilled at delivering “bed baths” in a way that provides for dignity and cleanliness without risking a hazardous walk to the bathroom.
Serious illness brings up many difficult questions and feelings. As we face the possibility of dying, we all have fears, worries, and concerns. At Solace Hospice, our hospice care team has received special training to help patients and families address these issues. We even have social workers and chaplains on the team. They can meet with you, your loved one, or even with the entire family. Their goal is to help everyone come to a better understanding of how to meet each other’s needs with grace and love.
I was reaching out to try and get some help with my mother. I called this company and was not aware they did not cover all of Arizona. I spoke to a wonderful lady who I think was Bev. She assisted me in finding a hospice for my mom. She had knowledge of hospices in the Prescott area. If I ever move to Phoenix I will be stopping by their offices to say thank you. She held my hand and called me back the next day to make sure that we were getting care for mom. They went above and beyond.
I can’t say enough about Solace Hospice. The level of care and attention to personal detail is so much higher than the other hospice company I dealt with. My family recently experienced the loss of our mother followed by our father in fairly close succession. All I can say is thank you Solace and I wish I had discovered you sooner. My mom’s passing was handled by another company. I can tell you they are not the same. Solace operates with a premium degree of care and compassion during such a difficult time
I cannot thank Solace Hospice enough for the amount of love and support they have provided my family with during this hard time. They were attentive, caring, informative and overall extremely experienced in this field.A special thanks to Maggie, Bevery, Katie, Janet, Diana, (just a few of the many) for the help you provided.Thank you all so much!!!Enea

I would like to express my gratitude to Costel Roman - Director of Business Relation at Solace Hospice, Thomas Fedzin - Owner of Solace Hospice during a difficult time in my life.

My family and I had an EXCEPTIONAL experience at Solace Hospice. It’s beyond evident that the entire team there carries genuine compassion, care, and concern for every single one of their patients. Also, aside from the incredible staff, the facility itself is one of a kind. I have nothing but good things to say about this place! My family and I definitely recommend Solace Hospice to anybody who is seeking to add some love and life to their loved one’s days 🙏
I've worked with multiple staff members at Solace Hospice and each and everyone is so incredible passionate about caring for the community. As a wife of a Director of Nursing at an assisted living facility, I hear often about how important great care -- Solace provides great care!

We were recently reintroduced to Solace Hospice by Costel Roman and Jesse Watson, two of their community liasons, and in the process were impressed with their client-focused service. The biggest selling point for us as a group home is that they were not going to be a hospice that simply stopped fighting for a client and allowed them to die. Many of our residents and their families initially are fearful of the word “hospice” and typically think it means a death sentence. Many of them are not ready to give up the good fight and Solace has been a partner with our home to ensure the resident, their family, and our group homes are all respected and active partners in the continued care and needs of the resident. Everyone from their intake staff, RNs, and CNAs was compassionate, caring, and dutiful in their tasks. Special mention goes to the Nurse assigned to our home, Sabrina. She helped us guide the resident and their family through the difficult process of passing away, and her knowledge and compassion for my resident and her family will never be forgotten. Owning three different group home locations has given me plenty of experience and exposure to many different Hospice companies, but without a doubt, Solace Hospice is one of the best. I can not recommend them enough, whether you be a group home, a family member of a loved one, or someone looking to work at a hospice company. Thank you Costel, your team provided me much peace of mind. I look forward to continue to working with your team.
I cannot begin to describe the gratitude and appreciation my family feels about the experience we had with Solace Hospice. I didn’t know quite what to expect at the time when my father was on your service. My father had such great care! My concerns were quickly relieved. Thank you for the kindness and compassion you have given to us and for the genuine concern for my father and for our family. We sincerely appreciate your tireless effort to care for all your patients and their loved ones, and your eagerness to assist at every turn.
I own 5 assisted living group homes around the Phoenix area. I am always relieved when my residents and their families choose Solace Hospice to help their loved one. I can always rely on Thomas and his staff to take care of my residents. They interact incredibly well with my caregivers and offer assistance 24/7. And they back it up. There have been numerous times when we needed some help from Solace in the middle of the night. Someone from Solace would come out to the home without hesitation and take care of everything. Thank you Thomas for running such a wonderful company!
Great professional help during a hard time. Thank you for making things easier to manage during our time of need. They gave our loved one lots of comfort any time he needed it. Which added relief to me as I knew he was in good hands. Thank you so much Thomas and staff!
As a care coordinator for multiple assisted living homes, I am grateful for the opportunity to have Solace Hospice care for our residents. Working closely with Thomas and his staff Is always a pleasure. All around, a great experience.
Thomas and staff were always friendly and available to help us. We learned so much about our Client’s situations. They are definitely very knowledgeable and confident of what they do to help our clients in our group home meet their needs.
