OVERVIEW

Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, hospice involves a team-oriented approach to skilled care, pain management, and emotional + spiritual support tailored to the patient and family.  At the center of hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free, with dignity, and on our own-terms, and that patients and families will receive the necessary support to do so. 

 

Our Hospice Team is dedicated to improving the lives of those with late-stage illness, injury, or disease. We enable patients and families to live life on their own terms with more knowledge of their disease progression, as well as confidence in, and control of, their symptom management. 

Our Hospice team consists of:

  • Physicians

  • Nurses (CHPN)

  • Social Workers

  • Spiritual and Bereavement Coordinator (PhD)

  • Home Health Aide

  • Therapists (as needed)

Among our efforts to care for each individual and family, the following services are some of our team's main responsibilities:

  • Manage patient pain and symptoms

  • Provide needed drugs, medical supplies, and equipment

  • Coach the family on how to care for the patient

  • Deliver special services like Physical and Speech Therapy when needed

  • Assist with the emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual aspects of dying

  • Make short-term inpatient care available when pain or symptoms become too difficult to manage at home or if the caregiver / family need respite time

  • Provide bereavement care and counseling to surviving family and friends

Start the Conversation

Having a conversation about end-of-life care, advanced directives, and plans for the future may not be the easiest conversation you'll ever have, but it is one of the most important. One conversation can make all the difference.
