• Palliative Care
• Hospice Care
• Bereavement Care
Hospice offers comfort, dignity, and compassion to the terminally ill. Physical symptom management is provided for the patient while spiritual and emotional care are offered to patients and their families alike.
Hospice is a holistic, non-curative, approach to care, which places emphasis on enhancing the lives of patients for their remaining days. Hospice develops a plan of care specific to the needs of each patient and family.
Realizing that no one can be everything to another person, Hospice works in a team environment. Each patient is cared for by a primary care nurse, home health aide, social worker, spiritual care counselor, and a bereavement coordinator. This team works with the attending physician, the Hospice medical director, Hospice volunteers, and if needed, other supportive services. In addition to staffing, hospice also provides medications, supplies, and equipment related to the terminal illness.
The Mission of Hospice at Home is to:
- Serve our patients, families and communities with dedication and compassion.
- Deliver the best end-of-life care to help people experience peaceful, pain-free and sacred deaths within the context of their own lives.
- Guide our youth, adults and families through the grief process with timely and consistent availability.
