Our Expertise

The Hospice Team Our trained staff approaches patient and family care as an interdisciplinary team. Each patient receives services tailored to individual needs provided by the hospice care team that includes nurses, social workers, home health aides, chaplains, physicians and specially trained volunteers.
Skilled Nurses Skilled nurses play a key role in easing physical and emotional symptoms. Nursing visits are as frequent as patient need dictates. In addition to coordinating the patient’s care, nurses provide direct nursing care and educate and support both the patient and caregivers.
Social Workers Social workers provide services that include helpful information to guide families during the end of life journey and grief support. As needs are identified, the social worker assists the patient and family with coping strategies that may include emotional, social, financial or spiritual assistance.
Certified Home Health Aides Certified home health aides assist with daily living needs. Personal hygiene care, (bath, shampoo, oral hygiene), simple wound care, toileting, feeding and skin care is provided. Supportive care such as personal laundry and meal preparation is available.
Spiritual Counselors Spiritual counselors provide support in keeping with the patient’s personal faith or belief system and practice. If the patient does not have a spiritual care provider and wishes one, the hospice chaplain is available to visit or assist in locating a cleric of their choice. The chaplain is also available to support clerics in meeting the needs of patients.
Specially Trained Volunteers Specially trained volunteers are available for companionship, errands, spirtual support and respite care.
Personal Physicians The patient’s attending physician is a member of the hospice team and remains actively involved in the patient’s care.
