Our Story

book1First Choice Home Health and Hospice is locally owned and operated. We have been serving the Treasure Valley since 2004 with our Home Health Company. Our Hospice was originally A Better Way Home, LLC – a hospice and palliative care program caring for terminally ill patients in the Treasure Valley since 2009. Our House Calls program has been serving the Treasure Valley since April 2016.

In 2012, First Choice Home Health and A Better Way Home joined forces to create First Choice Home Health and Hospice. Together, we can offer more comprehensive services to our patients and their families.

In April 2016, we recognized the need to create our House Calls division. House Calls allows us to bring health care to patients who are unable to safely leave their home.

Our goal is to provide best practices in all that we do for our patients, their families and for the communities we service.

We appreciate the opportunity to care for those who need our services. We take great pride in being a resource in healthcare for our community.

Specialty Programs

Massage Therapy

The First Choice Hospice Team includes a licensed massage therapist. She is part of the patient care team and she visits patients to provide gentle massage and/or therapeutic touch. Our massage therapist adjusts her approach to the needs of the patient. Learn more

Speech Therapy

Our Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) provide skilled clinical services. They work with patients to improve their quality of life through regaining the ability to eat and swallow, improving cognitive skills for increased independence, and helping to regain communication skills to express wants, needs and ideas. Learn more

Psychiatric Nursing

Psychiatric illness often exists in tandem with physical illness, requiring nursing care that is specific to both conditions. Psychiatric nurses have specialized training and experience to address an individual’s physical and medical needs, while simultaneously managing their emotional and psychological needs. Learn more

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence (UI) is associated with increased falls, urinary tract infections and skin breakdown. At least 10% of people over the age of 65 have UI. It is estimated that at least 50% of nursing home residents have UI. Our Non-Invasive Urinary Incontinence Program provides a comfortable and dignified method of improving a patient’s retention ability to restore muscle tone and control. Learn more

End of Life Doula

Today, many families have had experience receiving support from a birth doula. Now at First Choice Home Health and Hospice, we have an end-of-life doula available to support families through the end-of-life process. Our certified end-of-life doula is an integrated member of the hospice care team. Learn more

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

“What a surprise to come home and find my bride of 66 years sitting at the kitchen table with a big grin on her face and these wonderful folks at First Choice had curled her hair, put on lipstick and had her dressed up very pretty. There was a pretty cake, a poster with best wishes signed by the folks of this wonderful hospice. To top it off, there was a great dinner from Costco, enough for three meals. What a wonderful anniversary.”

“I would like to thank First Choice for the excellent care they gave my husband Michael. I wouldn’t have been able to keep him home and care for him if it wasn’t for your staff, Michelle, Tanya and Christy! They became a part of our  family, they weren’t just nurses that came into our home! We grew to love them and I will always hold a special place in my heart for them! I would also like to thank Sherry and Bruce for their wonderful support, especially before Michael passed. God bless you all and everything you do!”

“I have worked with and utilized this family like company for 4+ years in the assisted living facility. There is consistency with every nurse that comes into our building, communication is strong and the love shown to their patients is sincere. Very blessed to have the opportunity to refer our residents who we love like family to an agency who also loves and treats them like family. Thank you for ALWAYS showing compassion to each person!”
