Hospice & Palliative Care announces website upgrade


NEW HARTFORD — Hospice & Palliative Care (HPCI) has upgraded its website www.hospicecareinc.org to offer its contents in Arabic, Bosnian, Russian, Somali, Spanish and English.

Visitors to the website will click Select Language at the top of the home page for translation.

Hospice officials said the Mohawk Valley is a melting pot in the truest sense, so it made sense for Hospice & Palliative Care to ensure that potential patients and their respective families could access the organization’s website and have no doubt about the meaning of any of the contents of the website or what services are offered.

HPCI, established in 1977, is a charitable organization that provides a holistic approach to end-of-life care. HPCI provides quality, compassionate care to chronically ill and terminally ill patients and their families in Oneida, Herkimer, and Madison Counties.

Hospice & Palliative Care is the recognized leader in palliative and end-of-life care in the community.

In 2020 HPCI served more than 1,000 hospice patients, palliative care patients and their families.

They also honored hospice patients that were veterans through the We Honor Veterans program. These patients are served in their own homes, the Hospice Siegenthaler Center, the Abraham House, the Rome Home, and local nursing homes.

In 2020 Hospice & Palliative Care utilized its interdisciplinary team including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, certified home health aides, social workers, spiritual counselors, and volunteers to address the needs of patients and their families.

HPCI’s Bereavement Counselors also served hundreds of hospice bereaved individuals through one-on-one counseling, support groups, and other grief support activities for 13 months after the death of the patient. Hospice also provided its bereavement support groups to community members at no charge.
