Hospice is a philosophy of care and can be provided wherever the patient lives. Our nurses, certified aides, social workers, and hospice chaplains will be at the patient's call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Hospice is a service that focuses on symptom management and pain control for a patient who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Hospice allows for the patient to live his/her final days in a peaceful, comfortable, and dignified way.
Although hospice patients must have a terminal illness, our philosophy emphasizes positive outcomes through goal setting and living life to the fullest. In fact, hospice patients are not required to have a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate).
Patient is receiving hospice care in their home.
When a patient needs short-term crisis management of pain symptoms that cannot be handled in the home, the patient is transferred to a contracted facility inpatient facility.
When caregivers need time away from their caregiver responsibilities, patients can stay in a contracted facility for up to five days.
A Licensed Nurse and a Certified Nursing Assistant can provide 24 hour care for patients and/or patient's family in a crisis situation.
