A multi-disciplinary team of professionals is available to provide a wide range of support for patients and their families 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The medical director leads our interdisciplinary care team in developing a plan of care and provides consultations to physicians regarding hospice care.
Our staff of compassionate nursing, pain management and symptom control, provide scheduled patient visits in the patient’s place of residence.
Nurse aides provide in-home personal care for the patients, including bathing and linen changes.
Skilled social workers offer supportive counseling to both the patient and those who share in the patient’s life. This support continues for at least a year after the patient’s death.
A hospice chaplain is available for spiritual counseling and works with the patient’s chosen religious community to provide comforting spiritual support.
All hospice volunteers must complete a volunteer training program. Our volunteers provide companionship and friendship to hospice patients and their families. They provide assistance with everyday tasks such as running errands, providing transportation and caring for pets. Volunteers also provide emotional support and primary caregiver relief taking time to listen or just sit quietly and hold a hand.
