At Solace Hospice, our goal 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 him or her the most joy. Our team of professionals comes to the home to assist you with medical, emotional, and spiritual support.
Do not let concern about finances keep you from these vital services! Payment for hospice care is covered 100% by Medicare and Medicaid. Frequently it is fully covered by private insurance as well. No one will be denied care because of an inability to pay.
Care for the patient and family
In hospice, we provide assistance to the patient AND to the family members. Families who come to Solace Hospice for help receive support services customized to their unique needs.
Sooner is better than later
Most hospice families say they wish they had started on hospice sooner. The care of their loved one and the amount of support they received made a tough time a lot easier. If you would like to learn more about this free service, give us a call at 602.888.7037.
Solace Hospice Circle of Care Compassionate and Competent Care, provided by our hospice professionals and trained volunteers/staff working together as a team 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, to assess and meet your need and your loved ones unique needs as the end of life draws near.
Home is where your loved one lives
No matter where your loved one lives, members of our staff can come to the bedside. At an assisted living or nursing home facility. At your relative’s house or apartment.
A nurse will visit periodically to check on your loved one’s condition. The nurse can answer questions. He or she can 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 social worker
a nondenominational chaplain
a physical or occupational therapist
These professionals offer important advice and support to patients. They also are available to help family and friends who are providing day-to-day care.
We even have specially trained volunteers. They can stay and visit with the patient for a few hours each week so family caregivers can take a much-needed break.
Our staff at Solace Hospice are trained to relieve pain and discomfort. The definition of “pain” is very broad in hospice. It includes physical, emotional, and spiritual distress. As a result, our team is holistic in its approach.
Sometimes the best remedy is medication. If so, we will ask the doctor for a prescription. Some treatments for symptom relief involve surgery or radiation. This too is covered.
Sometimes 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 special equipment is required, it can be ordered. Oxygen for shortness of breath. A hospital bed for safety and comfort. All prescriptions, equipment, and supplies needed for pain and symptom relief are provided at no charge.
Everyone feels better after a bath. Shampooed hair that is nicely styled and a good shave or a little makeup can do wonders for self-esteem!
Hazards of giving a bath
Seriously ill individuals are often unable to bathe or groom themselves. Family members may try to help, but assisting another person in and out of the tub can be physically demanding. The floors are slippery. Surfaces are hard. And bathrooms are typically cramped with very little room for moving around.
More injuries occur in the bathroom than in any other room of the house. And the injury can be with the caregiver as much as with the patient! Family members are not trained in methods for safely moving a frail or weak person. Even giving a sponge bath to a person in bed can be hard on a caregiver’s back.
Our skilled professionals
Our nurse aides, however, have learned safety techniques to protect their patients and themselves from injury. An aide can come to the home two or three times a week to help with bathing and grooming. This relieves your family of worry and risk.
Let us free up your time and energy
At Solace Hospice, we know there are many things that only family members can provide. Let our staff help with tasks such as bathing and grooming. This gives you time and energy to more easily provide the special love and affection only relatives can give.
Patients of Solace Hospice and their families are free to call the office 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have professionals available to answer your questions. No waiting until the morning, with your loved one in pain. You call and we respond. If it’s something we can help with over the phone, great! If not, our staff will come to check on your loved one. They will offer recommendations and make sure you are comfortable with the treatments being suggested.
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 staff has received special training to help people address these issues. We even have social workers and chaplains on staff. 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.
With all the rush and commotion in the doctor’s office, it’s not always easy to remember everything you’ve been told—or even what you wanted to ask! Our nurses are available to answer your questions. In the comfort of your home, our staff can explain the disease and the medical issues that surround it. They understand the day-to-day impact of living with your loved one’s condition: the symptoms, the side effects of treatment, the likely progression of the illness. We’re there to help in any way we can. Even in the context of an incurable condition, just knowing what to expect helps many patients and families relax and feel less anxious about the process.
Pharmacies, doctors, physical therapists, equipment suppliers … it can be mind boggling! Hospice care involves coordinating these many services. You do not need to worry about paperwork, arranging physician orders, etc. You are freed to concentrate your attention on your loved one’s daily needs.
At Solace Hospice, family members are part of the caregiving team. You are also the recipient of our care. We know that your loved one would not be as comfortable if it were not for you. You make a valuable contribution. You also are undergoing a very stressful and difficult time.
Supporting the family
Our goal is to support you emotionally and physically so your health remains strong. We suggest treatments for your loved one based on what he or she needs. We also consider the needs and capabilities of family members. Our social workers and chaplains are available to help you. They understand the powerful issues that arise when a loved one is seriously ill. We have volunteers who can come to the home for a few hours. They visit with the patient so you can get out and have some time to yourself.
Respite and grief support
And for those patients on Medicare, we can often arrange for your loved one to stay a few days in a nursing home. This gives you or an elderly spouse time to rest. Build up reserves. And finally, at such time that your loved one passes, we are also available to help with grief support groups and a volunteer to talk to.
If you think your family might benefit from the support of our hospice team, please give us a call at 602-888-7037. We would be honored to serve you.
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

Everyone at Solace hospice is absolutely amazing! True professionals who know their business, but more than that they have genuine and heartfelt concerns for their patients, and the patient’s families. These are highly skilled and experienced people. They understand end-of-life issues inside and out, and attend to details we never would have thought about. We were highly impressed with the care provided to our grandma/grandpa and our hearts warmed by the special touches that showed these people are doing much more than just a job. Thank you!

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!
02:21 13 May 18
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!
