HOSPICE

 

Hospice is a service that cares for terminally ill patients and their families during the last few months of the patient’s life. Based on the knowledge that most people, given a choice, prefer to pass with dignity, surrounded by those they love and Memorial Hospice brings comfort to those who choose this.

 

Although the main focus of Hospice care is provided in the home, Memorial Hospice also cares for patients in the  nursing home and hospital.

 

Competent, compassionate care by Memorial Hospice enhances the quality of life for dying patients and their       families.

 

Hospice staff and volunteers help patients and their family and friends to focus on what is most important to them: allowing people to spend time together, share memories, say good-byes, find peace and care for one another.

 

Medical assistance or supervision by the personal physician for pain/symptom control.

 

Services we are able to provide for hospice care include:

 

Skilled nursing visits intermittently in the home as needed to coordinate the patient’s care.

Social worker assistance to identify and make referrals to community resources.

Spiritual counseling through the pastoral ministry to assist the family as requested.

Volunteer supportive services for the patient and    family.

Crisis on-call service to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Emotional support to grieving family members for one year after the patient’s death.

Patient/family decision making in the plan of care.

Inpatient care, prescription drugs, equipment, supplies, respite care, and ancillary personnel.
