Support. Assurance. Comfort.
Hospice care is about living! When a patient is diagnosed with a life limiting illness, the patient and family may become overwhelmed with planning, emotions, questions, and fear. The Traditions Health hospice team provides support and guidance to patients and their families to address each of these needs throughout their end of life journey. We walk with the patient and their loved ones each step of the way, providing the education and care they need to have the best quality of life possible.
Our team is passionate about building relationships with our patients and their loved ones so that we know what matters most to them. Whether the need is physical, spiritual or emotional, our compassionate hospice experts are available to provide the necessary support. Comfort and dignity are the anchors of hospice care. Our clinicians are highly skilled at recognizing and managing symptoms early, in most cases allowing the patient to remain comfortable at home throughout the end of their life.
When a patient has been diagnosed with a life limiting illness, our compassionate team of Hospice nurses are there to meet their needs. Hospice nurses oversee the coordination of a patient's care throughout their time on hospice care. Our nurses are trained to recognize and manage symptoms to help patients remain comfortable in their home environment.
Medical Social Worker
Social Workers can be very beneficial to patients needing care at home. They provide information and resources to help the patient remain safe and cared for in their own homes. The Social Worker provides education and aid in setting up community resources to assist with any medical, psychological or social assistance that may be needed.
Our Chaplains are an important part of the hospice team. Many people turn to spirituality for comfort in their end of life journey and our Chaplains are available to provide support to families during this time. They meet you where you are, and they support your beliefs. Regardless of culture or religion, our Chaplains provide spiritual and emotional support for patients and their loved ones in preparation for their end of life journey.
Traditions Health helps patients and families focus their energy on what matters – making the most of each day. As patients struggle with the clinical decline associated with end of life, therapy may provide comfort and improvement in their quality of life. The Traditions Health therapy team consists of Physical Therapists, Speech Therapists and Occupational Therapists.
The end of life journey can be difficult for loved ones. At times, they may need to run errands, go to an appointment, or simply meet a friend for a cup of coffee. Traditions Health has volunteers available that will sit with patients, read to them, or just spend time with them allowing loved ones to the comfort of knowing patients are well cared for while they are away. Our Volunteer Coordinators match the right volunteers with the right patient to meet that patient’s needs.
Our Bereavement Coordinators provide grief support to our patient’s loved ones. We provide support groups, newsletters and referrals for community resources as families and caregivers experience this difficult time.
