SCOPE OF CARE

 

The hospice program is a complex, versatile program which offers palliative and supportive care to dying patients in the home.  A multidisciplinary team approach is used to offer a wide range of services to the patient and family.  These services may include:  nursing, CNA, dietary counseling, pastoral counseling, social worker, speech, physical therapy, volunteers and bereavement counseling.

 

While the focus of this program is in the home, hospice patients may use the inpatient hospital hospice rooms for pain or symptom management, or respite care.  In the home, the services are provided on a part-time, intermittent, regularly scheduled basis, and around-the-clock-basis.  On-call personnel are available 24 hours a day including weekends and holidays.

 

The hospice staff consists of professionally trained and licensed personnel who embrace the hospice philosophy and actively work toward the goals set by the patient, caretaker and hospice team.  All personnel are involved with continuing education in hospice.
