CERTIFIED HOSPICE AIDES
Our certified hospice aides help with personal care, such as bathing and mouth care. They can also help with light cleaning, light laundry, and occasional shopping.
Our chaplains offer spiritual support.
Volunteers are important elements of the team who are available when they are needed most.
We have dieticians who help patients achieve the best nutritional standards given the current state of their health. Dieticians have much experience in dealing with the dietary challenges that often affect the terminally ill. In conjunction with the physician, dieticians will advise on meal plans, food preparation, and even on how to serve the patient properly. All patients entering hospice care will be evaluated at the time of admission into the program. If there is a need for nutritional assistance, a dietician will be provided to assist and educate patients and their families.
An occupational therapist/physical therapist can evaluate the ability of your loved one to accomplish activities of daily living (ADL) to carry out common everyday tasks, such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing one’s teeth, eating, walking, getting in and out of bed, going to the bathroom, etc. If patients experience difficulties performing these types of skills, the therapist can devise a therapeutic plan designed to help patients regain their independence. Occupational and physical therapy can often help with the patient’s self-esteem, confidence, and attitude. Sometimes, different adaptive or assisting devices are used to help patients accomplish their ADLs. The therapist can teach your loved one special technique that will help utilize energy more efficiently. Helping your loved one continue much of his/her daily routine can dramatically improve their quality of life.
