Comfort & Support

We appreciate that no two people are alike. It’s one of the main benefits of contacting us early on. With time, our entire team can get to know your preferences and wishes to help you live comfortably for as long as possible. Your team of hospice care specialists may include:

  • Physicians, with expertise in pain and symptom control, who guide and direct the plan of care developed by you and your team.
  • Registered nurses who work with your doctor to develop a personal care plan, including necessary medications and home medical equipment to keep you as comfortable as possible.
  • Medical social workers to help you and your loved ones cope with the complicated emotions and circumstances that can surface at the end of life.
  • Spiritual counselors to provide support according to your wishes and beliefs; to serve as a calming presence as one considers religious practices, life, forgiveness; and to affirm self-worth and dignity.
  • Hospice aides who help with bathing and grooming, changing bed linens and even light chores, giving caregivers the chance to spend quality time with their loved ones.
  • Massage therapists specially trained to relieve pain and promote comfort.
  • Music and art therapists who provide a vital emotional outlet.
  • Dietitians to keep your energy up and adapt to your changing tastes.
  • Specially trained volunteers who bring a sympathetic ear, an empathetic heart and an extra pair of hands to help around the house.
  • Additional team members may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and other care providers.
