Terminally ill patients or anyone experiencing the loss of a loved one.
Optimal Hospice Care works together with patients and their families to enhance quality of life. Hospice services are available for those typically affected by any type of life-limiting condition. By utilizing the most modern pain and symptom management techniques combined with a compassionate support system, hospice services help to reduce the overwhelming stress and anxiety that can come with caring for a loved one with a life limiting illness at home or in a residency facility.
Hospice Care Team: When the focus of medical care changes from cure to comfort, the Hospice Care team provides physical, emotional, practical and spiritual support for the entire family. Hospice provides home visits by nursing staff, medical social services, therapy services, physician services, hospice aide, and volunteer services.
Bereavement/Spiritual Counseling: Hospice also includes individual or group counseling. The professional team can provide individual counseling as well as offer regularly scheduled community groups. Hospice has developed the ‘Kids Grief Connection’ for children experiencing the loss of a friend or a loved one, including a family member. All services are provided to the community free of charge.
