Queen Creek is know for its unique charm, country style living and family friendly atmosphere. Neighbors are friends and family ties are strong. The town of Queen Creek continues to grow year after year and is always a very popular destinations for visitors and tourists alike who are drawn to the area by the many fun and family friendly festivals and year-round events. But if you or a loved one are dealing with a terminal disease or life limiting illness, getting help beyond what family and friends may be able to offer, can be tremendously relieving.
Americare Hospice and Palliative Care has been providing professional medical and emotional support to families in need of hospice care. We focus on alleviating physical pain, but also always address the spiritual and emotional health of our patients and their families as well. Many of our patients choose us, because of our holistic approach to hospice care.

Meet Our Nurses
The care of Americare’s patients and families lies in the hands of our experienced and compassionate nursing team. The team consists of the hospice physician who supervises the nursing team, but also does home care visits to our patients in the palliative care program. The nurses at Americare are schooled in to provide medical care to our patients who are dealing with pain or other medical symptoms. They are also able to assess our patients’ care and medical needs. The hospice aides are responsible for making our patients feel well cared for. They assist in cleaning and grooming tasks and ensure that every patient is as comfortable as possible. Americare is proud of its wonderful team of social workers who are here to help patients and their families deal with end of life care, as well as the financial and legal aspects connected to it. Our Queen Creek hospice care services would not be what they are without the help of our many volunteers who spend hours keeping our patients company, reading to them or just spend time with them. Of course, we also offer spiritual guidance for our Queen Creek hospice patients via Spiritual Counselor Ministers. And because saying goodbye is never easy, you can always count on the empathy, compassion, and experience of our bereavement team.
For Queen Creek patients in need of intensive short term care, we offer inpatient hospice services in our “villa”. The Villa is Americare’s five bed inpatient unit that (while it looks anything but a hospital) is able to accommodate those with challenging medical treatment needs. While the use of the Villa is reserved for those with medical conditions that cannot be addressed in a residential setting, it is also open to patients of families who find themselves in need of respite care.
While your loved ones are cared for by our nursing team, you get a much needed break from providing home care. If you would like to know more about our Queen Creek inpatient services or are in need of respite care, contact us today to learn more.
In-Home Hospice Care
Our Queen Creek hospice care services are focused on in-home care. In fact, over 90% of hospice care takes place in a residential setting such as the patient’s home, a nursing home or similar facility. While many wrongly believe that hospice is a place, it is indeed a care service provided to those patients that are nearing the end of their lives or are dealing with life limiting illnesses. It is also important to realize that saying yes to hospice care does not mean you have given up, rather it is an affirmation to live every day to the fullest. Studies have shown that hospice care can make a tremendous impact on the quality of life and life expectancy for its patients. And while our primary focus is patient care, we do essentially provide care for the entire family and support team of our patients.
