Hospice Care

It seems with aging comes more and more loss of control over our bodies and our lives. The ultimate loss of control comes when one hears the words "you have a terminal disease and not long to live".

At Nemaha County Home Health & Hospice, we understand that feeling. While we cannot heal you, our goal is to enable you and your family to regain some control and become active partners in your care and your life in your last days.
