Our team approach
We provide hospice in home care to patients who would like to remain in their homes for end-of-life care. We work with the patient’s primary care provider (PCP) to enable our patients to have an aware, pain-free life while living each day to the fullest. Our hospice team includes a registered nurse who manages the hospice team, a social worker, a certified nursing assistant and a chaplain. If the caregiver needs some respite, we also have trained volunteers available to help.
Hospice focuses on comfort and quality of life rather than cure. It is designed to provide support during life’s final transition. Our interdisciplinary team works to develop an integrated plan of care that fully involves the patient, family and caregivers so that all feel honored, cared for and respected..
