We believe you should determine the services and the level of pain and symptom management you receive. Therefore, our services are coordinated between you, your Hospice team and your family. Based on your individual needs and preferences, you will receive:
Your comfort is our primary focus. Our registered nurses (RNs) are specially trained in pain control and symptom management. You will experience fewer trips to the clinic and hospital because we manage all equipment, medications and supplies in your home. Your nurse will visit as often as necessary to assess your medical needs.
Your Hospice nurse can serve as the link between you and your physician, which means no longer waiting for return calls from the doctor’s office.
Your nurse will also offer education and support to help your caregivers feel confident in their roles. If you or your loved ones ever have questions, a nurse is always available to speak with you, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our certified nursing assistants (CNAs) help with your personal care needs, such as feeding or bathing assistance, shaving or nail care. They can also offer light housekeeping services.
We schedule CNA visits based on what works best for you and your family.
Our social workers help manage the stress you may feel. They understand the emotional aspects of late-stage illness, and are sensitive to you and your family’s needs. They can also identify local and county services and resources for additional support.
Our chaplains are professional clergy who recognize spiritual needs at this time of life. If you wish, a chaplain will provide support to you, based on your personal beliefs. He or she can also serve as a link to your church or other faith community.
Our volunteers offer companionship by playing cards, reading a newspaper, having coffee, taking walks or giving wheelchair rides—whatever you find comforting. Scheduling is determined by what works best for you, your family and the volunteer.
Our grief specialists offer one-on-one visits, phone calls and literature to your family members for up to 13 months, depending on individual needs and comfort level. In addition, we offer support groups and practical suggestions on an ongoing basis during the grief journey.
