For Patients and Families
Facing a life-limiting illness can be devastating - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When a patient has made the choice to forgo aggressive or life-extending treatment for a progressive or incurable illness, and desires pain management or symptom control, the Hospice Home Care Program of Center for Hospice Care may be a suitable choice.
Hospice services are provided on a scheduled basis by the Hospice Team, which includes the patient's own physician and/or the Hospice Medical Director, nurses, social workers, spiritual care counselors, home health aides, and trained community volunteers. Emergency Care is available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. Hospice is always a phone call away.
- Skilled, compassionate care from Hospice Nurses and Home Health Aides making intermittent in-home visits.
- Management of pain and other physical symptoms through the appropriate use of medications and teachings.
- Training, advising and skill-building for those persons who will assist in providing patient care in the home.
- Emotional support and spiritual counseling for the patient and family.
- Social work/family support services.
- Physical, occupational, and speech therapies.
- Companionship and household assistance visits provided by dedicated, trained volunteers.
- Bereavement services are available to families for up to 13 months after Hospice services are no longer needed. Additional services are available on an ongoing basis.
