Meet Our Team!

Every patient and his or her family are provided their very own hospice team. The team consists of:

  • Physicians - Each patient receives a personal medical care plan that is put together by the patient’s personal physician and the hospice physician. The physicians and the other members of the hospice team are always in close contact with each other.

 

  • Nurses - Hospice nurses monitor each patient’s condition by making regular visits. The nurses specialize in palliative care, a special kind of care that helps increase comfort and minimize pain. The nurses keep the patient and their families informed about the illness and how to manage the pain and symptoms of the disease. In case of emergencies, hospice nurses are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

 

  • Social Worker - Acting as a support to both the patient and their family, the social worker helps the family deal with financial, insurance, and legal issues. The personal and social changes of disability, illness, and the dying process are some of the things the social worker helps the family cope with.

 

  • Spiritual Counselor - To help the patient and their families cope with the illness, hospice spiritual counselors are available to help with the spiritual and religious needs. The hospice works with the patient’s church or synagogue to meet the unique needs of each patient and their families. If the family needs help with the funeral or memorial services, the hospice spiritual counselors can assist the family.

 

  • Hospice Aide - Hospice aides are skilled individuals that provide a break in the normal routine of personal care for the caregiver. The hospice aides help the patient and caregiver manage personal care of the patient. Examples of some of the duties hospice aides provide are personal grooming, light housekeeping, cleaning up the patient’s area, and many others as needs arise.

 

  • Volunteer Coordinator/Volunteers - Members of the community who have training and an interest in helping people and their families in the final phase of life are hospice volunteers. Companionship for the patient and relief for the caregiver are examples of what volunteers can offer to hospice patients and their families.

 

  • Bereavement Coordinator - Bereavement counselors provide support to family members after the death of a loved one so they can move forward with their lives. Bereavement counselors organize support groups and offer one-on-one counseling to help out the families during a difficult time in their lives.
