Hospice

What is Hospice?

Hospice care doesn’t mean you’re giving up.

Hospice is a philosophy of care. It treats the person rather than the disease and focuses on quality of life.

At Hand In Hand Hospice Care, we surround the patient and family with a care team consisting of dedicated professionals who not only address physical distress, but emotional and spiritual issues as well.

Hand In Hand Hospice Care services are patient-centered because the needs of the patient and family drive the activities of the hospice team.

Our Focus

Hand In Hand Hospice Care focuses on putting life in end-of-life

Management

By managing symptoms and controlling pain, our patients have the opportunity to enjoy the highest quality of life for as long as they can. This gives patients the chance to share more special moments with their family and express all the things they need to say.

Practice

Through honest and ethical practices we are committed to doing the right thing for our patients, families, coworkers, and the communities we serve

Visits

While receiving hospice care, you will receive visits from your personal team of healthcare professionals including nurses, aides, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers. Each has been trained to meet the patient’s physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and personal care needs. Our hospice team will help with bathing, administering medication, wound care, companionship, and more.

Companionship

Patients don’t face their terminal illness alone. Their family is facing it, too. Hand In Hand helps families by supplementing their loving care with end-of-life care professionals who can recognize the signs of pain and unmanaged symptoms and provide the medical care needed to treat their loved one without a trip to the hospital.

 

Medication

Our hospice nurses work with families on how to administer medication and our aides will assist with your loved one’s bathing and grooming needs. Chaplains and social workers are also available to help you and your family work through the emotions and stress of this difficult time.

 

Medical Equipment

In addition, all medication, medical equipment, and medical supplies related to your terminal illness will be provided at no cost to you or your family.

Hand In Hand is here to walk with you and your family through this journey

When your loved one passes away, we’re still here. Our bereavement team will be with your family to provide support throughout the grieving process. We know how much It means for your loved one to have all the care and support available to them.
