HOC’s Advanced Lung Care Program provides the hospice care you need in the place you call home, surrounded by the people and things you love most.

Managing the symptoms you experience most:

  • Trouble breathing/shortness of breath
  • Cough and congestion
  • Anxiety/worry/depression
  • Chest pain
  • Swelling/fluid build-up
  • Feeling tired
  • Appetite problems
  • Trouble sleeping

By helping to manage these symptoms, and incorporating self-care techniques, we can keep you out of the hospital or emergency room and provide care in the comfort of your own home.

How do I know if this program is right for me?

You may be a good candidate if your current medications are not improving your symptoms. If you have had frequent hospitalizations and continue to experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, worsening cough, changes in mucus production or other lung problems, it may be time to learn more about hospice.

How can I learn more?

Contact us today for more information or ask a doctor about contacting Hospice of Cincinnati.

How is the Advanced Lung Care Program different than other hospice services?

To be eligible for this program, you must meet eligibility for hospice care (a diagnosis of a serious, terminal illness with a life expectancy of six months or less). The HOC Advanced Lung Care Program provides additional benefits such as:

  • Frequent home visits and calls by nurses who have received specialized training in evaluating and managing the symptoms of advanced lung disease
  • Having a care team that includes a Respiratory Therapist for consultation or visits when needed
  • Medications that effectively manage your symptoms to best help you do the things you enjoy
  • A specialized lung care plan to monitor changes and prevent symptoms from getting worse
  • Additional supportive care from Chaplains, Social Workers, Nursing Assistants and Volunteers

All patients enrolled in the HOC Advanced Lung Care Program will receive the Patient and Caregiver Booklet which contains the best standards of care for end stage lung disease.
