United Hospice, Inc. (UH) is a community-based, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization offering compassion, care, and comfort to individuals facing serious illnesses and their families.

United Hospice Is Here For You

Hospice Care at Home

United Hospice provides compassionate, specialized hospice care wherever the patient is most comfortable. This is often in the familiar setting of home, surrounded by family and friends. Our caregivers come to the home and provide the highest-quality therapies to relieve the patient’s pain and symptoms. We strive to enhance the patient’s quality of life and offer comfort and support to the patient and loved ones.

In-Residence Hospice Care

For some, receiving hospice care at home is not ideal. United Hospice provides care in a variety of settings- while the patient is in a local hospital, or is living in a nursing home, an assisted living facility, or a group home. Many patients and families choose to receive round-the-clock medical care in the beautiful and peaceful setting of our Joe Raso Hospice Residence in Rockland Country.

Emotional & Spiritual Support

Facing a time-limiting illness often produces worry, fear, and emotional pain for patients and those they love. During this period when time matters most, United Hospice offers emotional and spiritual support services to both our patients and their loved ones.

Bereavement & Grief Support

The passing of a loved one can be a time of intense, but normal, emotion. United Hospice offers bereavement support and grief counseling to families for up to 13 months following the death of a loved one. Our dedicated, compassionate staff of social workers is here to help families make a healthy adjustment to life when the person they love is lost.

It is never a mistake to call hospice.

It’s a positive step toward the help you need when time matters most.

Why Choose United Hospice?

You Are In Control

Education is the foundation of empowerment and the first step to gaining control during this trying time. We share our extensive knowledge with each patient and family member, reviewing all options and providing insights gained from our years of experience. This allows them to make informed decisions about care with confidence, knowing that they will receive support along each step of the journey.

Hospice Is Usually Covered

No one is turned away from United Hospice because of an inability to pay. Hospice care is fully covered under Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance plans. Our staff can work with your insurer to arrange for coverage. If you do not have health insurance, you may qualify for reduced fees or other special considerations. United Hospice serves everyone.

Patient-Centered Care

At United Hospice, care is centered on the patient’s wishes. We make every effort to keep our patients comfortable in the surroundings they choose. Our staff works with your doctors to create a plan that manages your pain and symptoms. You can rely on our dedicated team because they have experience in planning for comfort, maintaining dignity, offering support, and enhancing quality of life.

Specialized and Highly Trained Staff

United Hospice is the only hospice provider in Orange and Rockland Counties that has a full-time physician leading our expert pain and symptom management team. Our Medical Director, a specialist in palliative and hospice care, works alongside a full-time clinical educator to provide continuous training to our growing staff of nurses, home health aides, social workers, nutritionists, and therapists. Many members of our staff are bi-lingual so that we can better serve our diverse community in the language that they or their family prefer.

Enhanced Quality Of Life

United Hospice helps patients live as active a life as possible. Our services, such as physical therapy, massage therapy, and music therapy, are used to help enhance the patient’s quality of life and, in some cases, extend it. Our efforts allow patients and families to spend meaningful time together, focusing on creating lasting memories.

Care For The Whole Family

The emotional pain and stress of accepting a diagnosis of, and learning to live with, a life-limiting illness is often overwhelming for the entire family. Our multi-disciplinary staff will provide medical care management and practical support for daily living. We provide emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families. We also offer respite services to caregivers and bereavement services and grief counseling to loved ones.

Volunteers at United Hospice

Volunteers are the heart of United Hospice. We could not do what we do each day without the support of our amazing volunteers. They provide companionship to patients, assist in the office, serve in the community, sit vigil with grieving family members, as well as help in fundraising.


Hospice is the answer. After being informed about what hospice is and not the myth, we think that it is, everybody agreed to let the old man have peace. I think together, hospice and the family, we’ve done a good job. We’ve done an excellent job. You should not have any fear contacting your hospice organization. Thank you, hospice, for all you have done.

John O’Hara, United Hospice Patient

It seemed almost intuitive how the United Hospice professionals understood our family’s particular needs. I didn’t know they personalized care for each family.

Carole Vickerman

United Hospice helped my mother maintain a quality of life in the nursing home — enjoying activities, family, and friends, until her very last day.

Marianna Avarali

I want to thank all the staff at United Hospice for their help and support during my wife’s last days; especially the nurses, the Home Health Aide, the magic masseuse, the spiritual guides, the social worker, and now my one-to-one bereavement counselor. All treated my wife with kindness, grace and dignity.

Husband of United Hospice Patient

I love United Hospice. This is the best organization ever created. It’s a beautiful thing, the way you honor the veterans. All wonderful people, absolutely wonderful.
