What is Hospice?
Hospice is a special "concept" of care provided to patients and families facing a terminal illness. Hospice programs are recognized for their ability to ease the death and grieving experience, and for providing an alternative to traditional care in a hospital setting.
At Memorial Healthcare, our goal is to maintain the patient's quality of life by focusing on supportive care for the terminally ill patient and their family. The patient and family are both included in the care plan with special attention given to the emotional, spiritual and practical support needed and upon the expressed wishes of the patient and family.
The Hospice Team
Hospice care is provided through an interdisciplinary, medically directed team consisting of compassionate and caring hospice nurses, home health aides, social workers, a spiritual advisor and hospice volunteers.
Scheduled visits are made by hospice nurses to the patient's home providing pain management and symptom control. Throughout care, the nurse keeps the primary care physician informed of the patient's condition. These nurses are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
