to improving the quality of life through compassionate care for
individuals and families facing an end-of-life illness.
Our staff of highly qualified physicians, nurses, certified home
health aides, social workers, clergy, and volunteers work in
partnership with the patient, family, and their personal
physician to make the final period of life comfortable and
care is patient centered and patient directed. It is one
of the best examples in health care of collaboration by
an interdisciplinary team dedicated to meeting the needs
of the patient and family.
In consultation with the patient, his or her loved ones,
primary caregiver, and the patient’s own physician, the
hospice team prepares an individual plan of care based
on patient and family needs and goals.
Grief support is a vital element of Hospice care for families.
Before, during, and after the loved one’s
death, hospice grief
services can be an important support to assist patients,
families, and all the survivors of an individual patient.
Hospice care provides the psychological, emotional, and
spiritual grief support needed during the difficult transition
after the death of a loved one.
We offer counseling for those anticipating the death of
someone close to them as well as individual and group
counseling after death occurs.
