We provide 24 hour hospice care and services to patients and their families in their own home. Caring for the hospice patient is what we do, but that cannot be done properly without considering the caregivers and family. We at Hospice of New Mexico consider both the hospice patient and their loved ones as our patient. We watch out to make sure that caregivers are supported, not becoming exhausted, and understand the need to care for themselves too. The hospice Medicare benefit offers periodic respite care to allow families to get some rest of their own.
