Morgantown Hospice is a service of Monongalia General Hospital. This service is designed to help meet the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the terminally ill during the final phase of their illness. The program includes the patient's family and continues supportive services through the bereavement process. Morgantown Hospice has been serving Monongalia County residents since 1983.
Some patients and families find that the best place for them to be at the end of life is in an extended care facility (nursing home, personal care home, or assisted living). The same quality, compassionate care provided by Morgantown Hospice in people's homes is also available in all the extended care facilities in Monongalia County
Misconception One: Hospice is a place where people go to live until death. Hospice is designed to provide care for a person in their own home; whether that's a house, apartment, assisted living facility
