Your Benefits of Care Add Value to Your Services
Benefits of care come standard with our services. This adds value for all patients and families who receive hospice or palliative care.
Here are some of our most commonly requested patient benefits. If you would like a benefit not seen here, please ask!
Medical Social Services
Medical social services includes your healthcare social worker. They will help you identify your goals and address concerns about your care.
Your healthcare social worker will:
- Give information about care plans
- Help you solve problems or get resources
- Offer respite care for your caregiver
- Answer financial questions
- Arrange visits with volunteers
- Help you and your family cope with stress
They are on call for you 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
Suppose you need special medical equipment to relieve pain or manage a medical problem. Then, we make certain that your needs are met.
Mental-emotional care helps people who are faced with a big change in their health and life. For instance, learning about a serious illness could be difficult. Also, a referral to hospice can take a toll on emotions. In cases like these, our mental health care professionals can help. They work with range of mental health conditions and emotions such as anxiety, depression, and more.
We provide short-term relief care so that your care-givers so can rest.
Grief and Loss Support
Grief is a personal journey toward healing. Each person experiences it differently from the next. This is common in families when there is a loss of life. Grief may appear as sadness, anxiety, or anger. Sometimes, people feel grief both before and after a loss.
Grief and loss support can help us find our way again when someone we love dies. Therefore, we offer grief counseling, bereavement, and caregiver support.
Our support starts from the time you enter our care and beyond. Your bereavement counselor will support your family, friends, and loved ones. This support starts now and continues after their loss.
Volunteers offer companionship. They also assist with patient support. Sometimes, they may help with daily activities such as reading. Also, some volunteers run errands.
