WesleyLife Hospice Services

Hospice services

For more than a decade, WesleyLife Hospice has offered care that enables patients to focus on relationships, connections, and living the rest of their lives according to their wishes, goals, and needs.

Several sources, including the New England Journal of Medicine, report that hospice care may prolong a person's life. WesleyLife has provided hospice care and integrated support services to older Iowans for nearly 75 years, and we have earned scores of 100% in two recent government surveys: Treatment Preferences
Discussed with the Patient
, and Beliefs and Values addressed with the Patient.

Guided by Christian compassion, WesleyLife Hospice provides services in-home and elsewhere; wherever we're needed, we extend the personalized patient- and family-centered care for which we're known. We believe hospice is not about the end of life, but about encouraging patients to live life on their own terms. 

"We were so afraid of asking about hospice. Once we did, we wondered what had taken us so long. Mom is more relaxed, and she has more good days. It's also been very positive for our family." - Karen A., Ankeny 

WesleyLife Hospice comes to you wherever you call home — your house or apartment, WesleyLife- or non-WesleyLife-affiliated senior living community, a health center, or the hospital. We are honored to serve residents in Boone, Dallas, Hamilton, Jasper, Marion, Polk, Story, and Warren counties in Iowa.

Another reason to trust WesleyLife Hospice to care for your loved one: Our focus is not only on the individual we are serving, but on his or her family as well. Our bereavement team members connect with loved ones from the time our service begins, and they remain connected for at least a year. Through our bereavement services, we offer education, support groups, one-on-one support, and much more. To learn more, please contact WesleyLife Hospice bereavement coordinator Cindy Meek. 

And when you choose WesleyLife Hospice, you're connecting to the area's most comprehensive network of services for older adults, including transportation, home-delivered meals, home health care, in-home services, Adult Day services, and more. No matter what stage of life you're experiencing, we're here to try to enrich it.

Patients, family members, and friends can initiate hospice services. Contact us at (515) 978-2777, and we'll be there to help.

Proud to Support Military Veterans!

We Honor Veterans

WesleyLife is proud to be a Level 4 partner of We Honor Veterans! The national program helps WesleyLife Hospice provide the best end-of-life care to the veterans we serve, and also will facilitate expanded training for hospice volunteers. In addition, we recruit volunteers who are or were in the military to allow these special veteran-to-veteran connections to form. 

We're grateful to We Honor Veterans for this recognition, and proud of our team for working so hard to place WesleyLife into consideration for this honor!
