Hospice of the Fisher Home is an independent nonprofit hospice program in Amherst. The Fisher Home itself is a quiet, homey 9-bed residence. The Hospice also runs a growing community program to support sufferers and their caregivers in clients’ homes throughout Western Massachusetts.
Dedicated to each person’s right to die with dignity and without pain, the Home’s staff and volunteers provide expert individualized end-of-life care. For each patient, the Home arranges a team including a doctor, a nurse, a home health aide (if at home), a social worker, a spiritual counselor, a bereavement coordinator, and volunteers.
With this collaborative community approach, the Fisher Home cares for patients’ physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs, as well as the needs of their loved ones.
