We have an excellent Medical Director with many years of hospice experience that will coordinate our patient’s care with our interdisciplinary team as well as the patient’s attending physician.
Each patient will have routine visits by our registered nurses, based on acuity of care the patient requires – but no less than every 14 days.
Our patients will have the opportunity to speak with our trained Social Workers about a variety of issues that arise at the end of life. Our Social Workers can talk through family dynamic issues that may be troubling the patient. They are also there to enrich the lives of our patients and provide support when having difficult conversations.
We have Chaplains who are available to meet you where you are in your spiritual journey and help you to become at peace.
The hospice aide works under the supervision of a registered nurse and performs various services for a patient as necessary to meet the patient's personal needs and to promote comfort. The hospice aide is responsible for observing the patient, reporting these observations, and documenting observations and care performed. Our patients will receive hands-on Activities of Daily Living (ADL) care from our specially trained CNAs. They can help with bathing, dressing, toileting, grooming, etc.
Patients who may have a crisis while at home may need the inpatient level of care. This would be at a facility is specially trained to comfort hospice patients, so they would not have to go to Emergency Departments. These inpatient facilities are staffed with RNs 24/7 to provide quick knowledge and support to the patients.
Surprisingly, many patients have not planned for issues that inevitably arise at the end of life. Our team makes sure that these issues are talked about, so our patient's wishes are carried out according.
Our patient's families are offered support with the grieving process for up to one year after the patient's death. Families often have difficult times around certain anniversaries, birthdays, and important events. Our team helps ensure the family is grieving appropriately and provides support and guidance as needed.
