Your care plan is customized to your specific needs
When you or a family member receive care through one of our hospices, you can rest assured that you will have at your disposal a highly trained, professional team of caregivers who work together to develop a customized plan of care specific to you and your family's needs.
Following an initial assessment visit, a Registered Nurse will assemble a patient care team, headed by a Patient Care Coordinator (also a Registered Nurse) and a plan of care put in place that will address your every unique need. The team meets regularly to discuss changes in condition, changing family needs and any other issues related to care.
We approach care on a holistic, patient-centered (rather than disease-centered) basis. Recognizing that each person and family deals with illness and grief differently, your care plan will be tailored to meet those varied needs, while, at the same time, addressing your symptoms and the need for pain management and all other technical aspects of your care.
The team members you may meet during your association with our hospice could include:
All team members work in concert to ensure a unified, cohesive care plan that meets your every need. You can also be assured that as your needs change, the team will adapt to those changes and respond in kind. Our team is available to you and your family 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while you are under our care. No question is trivial and no need is too great -- our team will be an integral part of your life at this critical and very important time.
