Hospice is a philosophy of care focused on improving the quality of life in the last months, weeks or days of life. It is palliative, not curative, so the focus is on easing the symptoms caused by the illness. We focus on the physical, spiritual and emotional support for the patient and family. Hospice becomes a choice when the patient family and physician determine that future efforts to cure the illness are no longer feasible.
Hospice care is available when the following criteria have been met:
We are committed to the provision of compassionate care to our patients and their families. We believe that each individual should be provided the opportunity to face end of life in a dignified manner. Our focus is to provide our patients with physical, spiritual and emotional support, allowing them to live as full and comfortable life as possible through God’s grace.
Hospice of Hope offers a trained team of professionals and volunteers to help work through the physical, psychological, social and spiritual issues of death for the comfort of the patient and family.
And, when needed:
Hospice of Hope maintains contact with families for thirteen months following the loss of a loved one. Our professionals will provide bereavement, support and counseling that will enable the family to move beyond the loss and into a healthy and meaningful life.
We realize that this is a difficult time and you probably have many questions. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us.
Volunteers provide friendship, compassion and companionship for patients and their families. Volunteers may read to the patient, make phone calls, write notes and even provide bereavement support. They are the “heart of hospice”.
Hospice of Hope is committed to the provision of compassionate care to our patients and their families.
We believe that each individual should be provided the opportunity to die in a dignified and comfortable manner.
One of the ways we do this is through the help of our amazing volunteers who give some of themselves to make someone’s final days a bit easier by showing them compassion. Often the smallest actions that show someone is cared about can be so meaningful to them.
“You matter because you are you and you matter to the last moment of your life. And we will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die.”
