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.
