Goodwin House Hospice is a not-for-profit service providing end-of-life care (hospice) to individuals 18 and older with terminal illnesses. We offer hospice care in private homes throughout the Northern Virginia area and at our community locations, in Alexandria and Bailey’s Crossroads, for our residents.
Hospice is rooted in the belief that every person has the right to die pain-free and with dignity. Inspired by this belief, our hospice approach integrates medical care with spiritual care. Our goal is to provide comfort and improve the quality of life. We provide pain management and symptom control, personal care, social work services, counseling and spiritual support, and 24/7 on-call nursing support. Our additional services include pet companionship, end-of-life doula, and visits from Threshold Choir singers. We work as a team with patients and their families during every step of the process.
Our comprehensive team of skilled professionals have more than 50 years of experience. This includes:
Goodwin House Hospice is covered under Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans, and is Medicare-certified. We serve individuals ages 18 and older.
