Benefis Peace Hospice of Montana
The Inpatient/Residential Hospice program at Benefis Peace Hospice of Montana in Great Falls provides a homelike environment for patients who are experiencing a terminal illness in need of 24-hour care. The 12-bed facility is the largest hospice in Montana and the only inpatient hospice in the state. Peace Hospice features all-private rooms, equipped with the comforts of home.
The staff are experts in terminal care, addressing physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual issues that surround the dying process for the patient and the family. Our care is compassionate, supportive and focused on comfort and quality of life as patients near the end of life's journey.
This Hospice home- made possible by a $7.1 million anonymous donation- provides a much-needed option for people who face terminal illness. Patients can choose to live in this home surrounded by people who love them and are expertly trained in caring for their needs.
We all want the best for those we care about. When facing the end of life, Hospice helps people fill their day with comfort, compassion and dignity at a time when that's what matters most.
That's what Peace Hospice is all about.
