The hospice philosophy is a belief that everyone has the right to peace, dignity, and quality of life when facing a life limiting illness.
Hospice care treats the whole person and symptoms of the disease while providing physical, emotional, and spiritual support to the patients and their families.
Hospice care is provided by an interdisciplinary team that exercises compassion and respect for the patient’s desires for this chapter in their life journey. The interdisciplinary team consists of the hospice medical director, attending physician (a patient’s preferred physician may stay involved in their patients care if the patient and physician choose), nurse, social worker, chaplain, home health aide, and volunteers.
The hospice team makes regular visits based on your personal plan of care to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support to the patient by monitoring pain, managing symptoms, addressing nutritional and emotional needs, and offering support to the patient and family.
WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME FOR HOSPICE?
Hospice is for patients and families who have made the personal decision to no longer pursue aggressive or curative treatment of a life limiting illness and instead focus on comfort, quality of life, and time with family and friends.
Deciding the right time to elect a hospice is a personal choice. The right time for discussing the options available through hospice is NOW.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, there may come a time when efforts to slow or cure the illness are no longer effective or have become more painful or harmful than beneficial or effective.
Although the conversation regarding hospice care may be difficult to discuss, one of the best actions you can take for yourself and your loved ones is to understand what hospice is and what hospice is not before you are in a crisis.
