Hospice care is for a person with a terminal illness who is expected to have six months or less to live. However, hospice care can be provided for as long as the person’s doctor and hospice care team certify that the condition remains life-limiting.
The following are the members of our hospice care team:
A primary doctor and a hospice doctor or medical doctor will oversee care. Each patient gets to choose a primary doctor. This can be your prior doctor or a hospice doctor.
Nurses will come to you or your relative’s home or other settings to provide care. They are also responsible for the coordination of the hospice care team.
Home Health Aides
Home health aides can provide extra support for routine care, such as dressing, bathing, and eating.
Chaplains, priests, lay ministers, or other spiritual counselors can provide spiritual care and guidance for the entire family.
Social workers provide counseling and support. They can also provide referrals to other support systems.
Pharmacists provide medication oversight and suggestions regarding the most effective ways to relieve symptoms.
Trained volunteers offer a variety of services, including providing company or respite for caregivers and helping with transportation or other practical needs.
Other supportive professionals
