When around the clock hospice care is needed for complex symptom management, temporary caregiver relief, or for care until the end of the hospice journey, Unity’s inpatient facility provides a homelike, supportive environment in the comfort of private rooms.  Only Unity hospice patients and families have access to the skilled care and support offered by the compassionate staff at Meng Hospice Residence.

Not all hospice agencies have hospice & palliative board-certified doctors on staff. At Unity, our hospice physicians are experienced specialists who are board-certified in hospice and palliative medicine, as well as such specialties as family practice, internal medicine, and geriatrics. They have expertise in pain and symptom management to help maximize patients’ comfort and quality of life — the hallmarks of hospice care. Unity’s doctors and nurse practitioners can even make house calls.
