Forbes Hospice

Programs and Services

Forbes Hospice, established in 1979, features one of the region's most comprehensive hospice and palliative care programs. We offer palliative home care, a dedicated in-patient hospice unit, and can visit patients whether they live in their own home or in a nursing or assisted living facility.

When curative options are exhausted, Forbes Hospice emphasizes the quality of life.

Because emergencies do not respect business hours, Forbes Hospice nurses and other professionals are only a phone call away, day or night, seven days a week. All callers receive the comfort and reassurance of a trained Forbes Hospice staff member, regardless of when their call is made, and an immediate visit to their home is made when necessary. Respite care to relieve family caregivers adds to Forbes Hospice's full range of patient and family centered care.

We extend our reach from caring for a one-month-old child with congenital birth defects to a 105 year old person with end of life complications. Beyond patients with cancer, a growing number of our patients are coming to us with advance, chronic cardiac and pulmonary disease, end-stage neurological diseases such as ALS, Alzheimers and AIDS. We provide care to families in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Lawrence,Washington and Westmoreland counties.
