Let Us Help You!

What is Hospice?


Hospice is a type of care, not a place where patients go to receive care. Hospice brings together medical and non-medical caregivers as needed to serve patients with life-limiting illnesses, usually within the final six months of life. Hospice care does not hasten death — instead, the goal is to manage pain and other symptoms to make patients comfortable, so they can live every remaining moment to the fullest.

Home Affords the Greatest Comfort


Interim HealthCare of Charleston's hospice team serves patients anywhere they call home. In-home care enables families to spend maximum time together, in comforting surroundings. Our holistic approach to care focuses on the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each patient and their family. Because Interim HealthCare offers a full continuum of care options, our hospice care teams may include a physician, skilled nurses, home caregivers, a chaplain, and even specially-trained hospice volunteers.

Interim HealthCare's philosophy is family-centered and faith-based, which means we are dedicated to caring for all members of the family during a difficult season of life. Our team of compassionate professionals is here to assist with end-of-life care including comfort care, symptom management, and helping to improve quality of life. We also offer personal care services that can provide valuable respite care for family members.

During a time that can be especially stressful, we help you and your family find the peace and comfort you deserve at the time you need it most.


We Honor Veterans Program

We Honor Veterans (WHV) is a program designed to honor veterans who have elected their hospice benefit. At Interim HealthCare we are honored to have earned the 3 Star Level of Partnership. The WHV program initiatives begin upon a veteran's hospice election and continue with the family throughout their journey on hospice. Some of our WHV initiatives include a special Veteran Welcome, Veteran Pinning Ceremony, Quilt of Valor, and our Veteran Memorial Flag.

Bridge Program

Each healthcare journey is as unique as the individual and with our Bridge Program, we help you navigate the path. The goal of your Bridge Care Coordinator is to provide you with education regarding your options as health conditions change or decline and empower you to make decisions that are the right fit for you. A Bridge Care Coordinator can help facilitate difficult conversations and guide you and your loved ones through the process of making and communicating your choices.

Respite Care in Charleston

Respite Care

At Interim HealthCare of Charleston, we understand the physical, mental and emotional difficulties that come with caring for a family member who is reaching the end of life’s journey. Giving so much of yourself can be overwhelming at times, and caregiver burnout is very common. In order to provide the best care possible for your loved one, it is essential to take a break from care from time to time.
