Nurse Case Management (RN)
The hospice nurse coordinates care with the hospice team and the primary care provider. The hospice nurse ensures all aspects of the patient’s pain and symptoms are being well-managed by collaborating closely with the patient and his or her primary care physician, and by educating the patient and family members on the medications and treatments being provided.
Medical Social Worker (MSW)
The social worker provides emotional support, counseling, and guidance to you and your family in coping with stress related to the illness.
Hospice spiritual care is based on a high respect for both you and your family’s personal faith and belief.
Certified Nurse’s Aide (CNA)
The hospice CNA services are provided under the supervision of a registered nurse. The CNA assists you with personal needs on a part-time basis, which can include, but is not limited to, assistance with bathing, hair care, shaving, skin care, and light housekeeping.
Music-thanatology serves as a highly effective intervention in the care of hospice patients providing prescriptively delivered harp and vocal music in order to address physiological, emotional and spiritual suffering and healing at the end of life.
Our medical social workers and chaplain are available to assist families with anticipatory grief and offer 13 months of bereavement support after the death of a loved one.
