UNC Hospice has been serving residents in the Triangle area for over 30 years and became a Medicare-certified hospice organization in 1988. Our organization was started by a group of physicians and nurses who care deeply for the members of our community, and who set out with the sole purpose of serving families in need. Our years of experience mean that we’re able to reliably bring the best care possible to you and your loved ones.
Since the founding of UNC Hospice, services have expanded to six counties in the Triangle region of North Carolina. In 2017, we opened an inpatient facility, the SECU Jim & Betsy Bryan Hospice Home in Pittsboro, North Carolina to better serve our patients and growing needs of the community.
UNC Hospice provides care to patients in Alamance, Chatham, Durham, Lee, Orange, and Wake counties. Most patients receive services in their privates residences, but care can also be provided in contracted nursing facilities, adult care homes, and assisted living facilities.
When care in the home is not possible due to medical needs or caregiving challenges, our hospice home provides short-term inpatient care to our patients and families. The SECU Jim & Betsy Bryan Hospice Home receives patients from any location for this inpatient treatment.
Your support is critical to our ability to continue serving this great community. Gifts may be designated as memorials or honorariums, and we will notify the family of your kindness (without specifying the amount of your gift). Your contributions help provide care for our patients in UNC Hospice, as well as support our Grief Counseling Services offered without charge to the entire community.
Serving patients at such an important time in life gives meaning to our work. Hear from some of the families we’ve had the privilege to care for:
“Every UNC Hospice provider was consistently kind, responsive, and very skilled in all they did to ensure my mom’s final weeks on Earth were as comfortable, calm, and positive as was possible. Thanks to all.”
“My husband’s sickness was a shock to us. When they told us he would not get better, UNC Hospice was a great help. His nurse was wonderful as were all the other members. If he needed something, all we had to do was ask. Thank you.”
“Everyone from hospice gave of their time as much as humanly possible. The fact that my dad was in an assisted living facility allowed both staff to collaborate, and they did that extremely well. Thank you!”
