Pain Mangement

Our Hospice team receives orders from the patient’s attending physician and will address any pain or symptom issues.  By providing proper pain and symptom control, Hospice can enable the individual to live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Family Home Medical encourages mature individuals to volunteer their time to assist with in-home patient companionship services  If you are interested in a very rewarding opportunity, please contact Denise Kijewski or Jaime Wolfgang at Family Home Medical.










End of Life Care

Hospice affirms life and considers dying a normal process. It focuses on quality of life rather than length and doesn’t engage in any practices that would either hasten or postpone the dying process.

Our multi-disciplinary team consists of an attending physician to evaluate and direct your care; the hospice nurse will manage pain and disease symptoms; our social worker assesses the emotional and practical needs of both patient and family; a spiritual counselor supports both the patient and family in coping with emotional pain and spiritual issues; aides/homemakers provide personal care for the patient; volunteers provide personal companionship and emotional support for both patient and family and can also provide respite care; and a physical, occupational or speech therapist is available to facilitate communication, mobility and safety issues.










Bereavement Counseling
