Why Helios Care?
Catskill Area Hospice and Palliative Care has had the privilege of serving individuals and families and improving quality of life in our communities for over 35 years.
We are pleased to announce an exciting change that will bring more opportunities for our organization to help those in need. Beginning in October 2019, Catskill Area Hospice and Palliative Care will change its name to Helios Care.
We believe Helios Care better reflects who we are. Our new name and logo signifies the light and warmth our care brings to patients and families and it does not limit this care to a specific geographic area.
“Hospice and Palliative Care” are barriers to conversations
Hospice and Palliative Care are often misunderstood terms, with many individuals and families calling on us only in the final stage of dying. Data from medical research suggests that patients often feel better, and perhaps even live longer, when choosing palliative/hospice care earlier in their disease process. Our new name will help begin conversations earlier, allowing patients and families to more fully understand the choices available to them.
A growing service area.
Today, “Catskill Area” is an incomplete description of the area we serve. We provide care to individuals and families in areas that are not considered to be part of the Catskill area and felt it was appropriate to remove this from our name to avoid confusion.
We're Here to Begin To:
- Learn about your current circumstances and concerns
- Understand what is important to you and your patient
- Explore what services you may qualify for and discuss your options
- Help you to Feel Better and Live Better
