Calcutta House provides specialized inpatient hospice care for individuals facing a terminal illness.

This care is offered in the dedicated hospice facility, and it is recommended when patients require round-the-clock medical support and symptom management. Within Calcutta House, patients receive continuous medical and emotional care with a focus on symptom relief. Caregivers also benefit from respite care. The goal is to ensure a peaceful and comfortable end-of-life experience. Decisions about inpatient care at Calcutta House are made in consultation with the patient, their family, and the hospice care team to tailor the care to individual needs.
