Marcus Daly Hospice Services

End-of-Life Care in Ravalli County

Marcus Daly Hospice offers comfort, care and dignity for patients and their families facing an incurable, life-threatening condition, so that they may live as fully and independently as they wish.

At Marcus Daly Hospice we recognize how difficult it can be for the patient and family when someone is nearing the end of life. Our Hospice Team focuses on making this transition as smooth, peaceful and comfortable as possible. We focus on patient comfort, family education and addressing whatever the needs are at any given time.

The hospice philosophy affirms life, and does not hasten or postpone death. It promotes understanding and accepting that the journey of life eventually leads to death, and seeks to preserve and promote the inherent potential for growth within individuals and families during this last phase of life.

Our Hospice Services

A plan of care developed by you, your family, your medical provider and the hospice team will specify the services to be provided. The goal of hospice is to manage the symptoms of your illness (not cure it) and assist you in making the most of the time you have left. Services provided may include:

  • Physician
  • Nursing
  • Nurse Aide
  • Social Work
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • Medications
  • Medical Equipment and Supplies
  • Inpatient Care

  • Volunteer Support
  • Spiritual Support


A Care Plan That Works for You

Marcus Daly Hospice services are provided wherever you reside, whether that be in your own home, a skilled nursing facility or assisted living community. The condition of the patient and their available support system both play an important role in determining where the patient will be the most comfortable receiving care.

Care in the Home

When Hospice care is received in the home, the patient must have the support of a primary caregiver, as Hospice does not provide 24 hour care in the home. Our Hospice care providers and volunteers will make regular visits to provide direct patient care, educate and assist caregivers to enhance the patient’s quality of life in any way possible.

Care in Skilled Nursing or Assisted Living Facilities

When a patient resides in a skilled nursing or assisted living facility, primary care will be provided by facility staff with regular visits and support from our Hospice team members.


Respite and General Inpatient Stays

There may be occasions when your caregivers need time for time away or you need more intensive medical care than what can be provided outside the hospital setting. For these situations, the Hospice Care Team may recommend a stay at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital.

Your Needs Are Our Focus

At Marcus Daly Hospice Services, our goal is to provide you with the education, support and care that you and your family need to navigate the road ahead. You are not alone. Please call Marcus Daly Hospice Services at (406) 363-6503 to request more information.
