When at-home hospice care is not the ideal answer, United Hospice’s Joe Raso Hospice Residence may be the answer.

When is in-residence hospice care the best choice?

Here are a few situations in which United Hospice’s in-residence care is used.

  • If the patient lives in Orange or Rockland County, but his or her family lives too far away to provide care.
  • If the family lives in Orange or Rockland County, the patient’s family lives too far away to provide care.
  • If the patient has no support group or needs more care than can be provided in the home, whether he or she lives in Orange or Rockland County, or not.

The Joe Raso Hospice Residence, located at 415 Buena Vista Road in New City, New York, is an attractive option for many and is open to all.  Our nearly 10,000-square-foot facility provides the highest quality hospice care and services in a warm, home-like atmosphere.

I can’t say enough good things about United Hospice. United Hospice provided care for both my mother and father. The care provided by all of the medical team was spectacular. The “home setting” of the Joe Raso residence was peaceful for both of my parents but equally comfortable for all of us as family members. Every employee (nursing, social workers, cleaning staff, admin staff, etc.), helped to make our parents’ final days peaceful and allowed them to pass with dignity. There aren’t enough words to thank United Hospice. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

My twin brother was accepted for hospice at the Joe Raso Residence of United Hospice. We could not have found a more caring, supportive and peaceful place for him to spend his final days. The staff was warm and connected with my brother as well as with me and my family members. The facility is beautiful and the ambiance peaceful. I recommend it without reservation.
