HOSPICE CARE

RUSTY DEWEES | HOSPICE STORIES

​Why might you choose hospice care?

Hospice caregivers are dedicated to enhancing your quality of remaining life by keeping you as alert and comfortable as possible in a familiar environment with the support of family and friends. Hospice programs offer services in your own home or in a hospice center, like a respite house, long term care facility, or hospital.

 

What services are provided?

​Hospice services typically include:

 

  • Basic medical care with a focus on pain and symptom control with access to your team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • Medical supplies and equipment as needed.

  • Counseling and social support to help with psychological, emotional and spiritual needs.

  • Guidance with the difficult, but normal, issues of life completion and closure.

  • A break (respite care) for caregivers, family, and others who regularly care for you.

  • Personal Care Attendants who can help with personal care such as bathing and toileting.

  • Volunteer support, such as preparing meals and running errands.

  • Counseling and support for your loved ones after you die.
