A Board Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Medical Director provides consultation, support and supplemental services for your primary physician. If you do not have an attending physician, our Medical Director can manage your care.
Hospice nurses are expressly trained in pain and symptom management related to serious and terminal conditions. Services are provided to patients of all ages, pediatric through geriatric. Nurses make scheduled visits and on-call nursing assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Other services are available and are based on medical needs and keeping the patient comfortable.
Certified Hospice Care Aides attend to the personal and hygiene needs of patients, always mindful of the patient's dignity and independence. Hospice Care Aides make scheduled visits based on the level of care needed.
Hospice Social Workers help ease the stress associated with living with a terminal illness by assisting the patient and family with practical issues. Social Workers identify and facilitate community resources and benefits available to patients and their families. Social Workers make scheduled visits and are available for consultation.
Hospice recognizes the spiritual diversity of each patient. The Hospice Chaplains and team will support the patient's and family's spiritual preferences. Chaplains may consult with the patient's own clergy as desired or needed.
Hospice trained Volunteers can help caregivers and families. A Volunteer may sit with a patient for an hour or two, allowing the caregiver to get out of the home, run errands, visit with a friend or take a nap. Volunteers are assigned on an as-available, as-needed basis at the request of the patient or caregiver.
