Hospice provides compassionate family centered care to enhance the quality of life for a patient who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.   Hospice services are designed to provide support to patients, their families and loved ones wherever they reside.   An individualized plan of care is established with the patient and their family to meet their needs and wishes.

Our Hospice Team includes:

  • Hospice Physician who works in conjunction with the patient’s primary Physician to oversee the patients plan of care.
  • Registered Nurse manages the team caring for the patient managing the physical aspect of care including any pain or discomfort the patient may have.    The Nurse maintains communication and coordination among the entire hospice team.
  • Hospice Adie assists with personal cares and bathing in a caring and compassionate way.
  • Social Worker assists in providing emotional care to the patient and family.   They may also assist with any financial issues, help obtain any county support, if needed, and assist in making funeral arrangements.
  • Chaplain works in conjunction with patient’s clergy to provide spiritual care for the patient and their family.
  • Physical, Occupational, Speech and Massage Therapists are trained to promote comfort and safety and meet the needs of the patient.
  • Hospice Volunteers are specially trained in hospice care and provide respite and companionship for the patient and their family.

Additional Services:

  • Medical equipment and supplies which are related to the terminal illness are provided by Hospice.
  • 24 hour on-call support.
  • Medications related to the terminal illness.
  • Bereavement care is provided to family members and to the community of the bereaved.

This interdisciplinary approach of Horizon Health Hospice ensures that all of the patient and family needs are being met including the physical, emotional and spiritual aspect of care.
