What is Hospice?
Gaston Hospice is an award-winning hospice provider, serving Gaston County and surrounding areas. Hospice patients are cared for in both inpatient and outpatient settings, whether that happens to be their home, a family member’s home, an assisted living facility or a skilled nursing facility.
Although the home is the traditional setting to provide hospice services, some people are unable to remain at home. Gaston Hospice has established partnerships with most Gaston County nursing facilities/health care centers to provide services. These services include pain and symptom management, education for patients, family and facility staff; social, spiritual and psychological support for residents, family members and facility staff who desire it.
The Robin Johnson House, RJH, is the hospice inpatient unit owned and operated by Gaston Hospice/CaroMont Health located at 5005 Shepherd’s Way in Dallas, NC. Constructed and furnished through contributions from our community through individuals, businesses, and foundations.
Robin Johnson House is not a long-term care facility. It is specially designed to meet the symptom management needs of our patients when those symptoms cannot be managed in their homes. RJH patients receive 24-hour care. Care planning begins immediately with the goal of helping families get their loved ones back home as soon as they are ready.
