Working with you, your family or home caregivers, and your doctor, our registered nurses or licensed physical therapists assess and oversee your home health care and recovery process. Licensed occupational therapists, speech therapists, a nutritional specialist or medical social workers may also assist with every aspect of your recovery.
These are a few of the healthcare professionals and others who are part of the specially trained hospice care team:
Hospice medical directors: Meet regularly with the hospice team to assist in coordinating care. They’re available to advise caregivers, individuals and families on any needs that may arise, such as managing symptoms.
Hospice-trained nurses: Teach individuals and their caregivers how to administer medication and learn other skills to control pain and manage symptoms.
Nurses are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to support our patients and their families.
Licensed medical social workers: Help clients and caregivers with some of the practical aspects of end-of-life preparations. They’ll provide counseling and emotional support. They can also provide information and help with accessing other available community resources.
Specially trained hospice volunteers: Provide support, such as companionship and respite, as well as help with errands, personal care and household tasks.
