How We Help
Hospice is always an option
Many times patients and families mention “They wish they had called hospice sooner.” Sometimes this isn’t an option. Often patients may be in an eminent situation, where a decision must be made during crisis, you may feel that at that time, hospice is no longer an option. However, it is!
Hospice care can be started the same day as the referral is made. Even if a patient is on service for a short amount of time, even one day, they will be treated for comfort, they will have any necessary medical equipment, medication, and supplies that are needed, including transportation home from the hospital, if needed.
Even when a patient is only on service for one day, with Doctor’s Hospice, our Bereavement Team will follow the patient’s family through the grieving process for 13 months after, to ensure they are grieving and recovering properly. Many times this is a critical piece for families who have experienced an unexpected death.
When we admit a patient to hospice, we admit a family, please consider the importance of hospice care for patients and families when faced with an eminent situation.
We're committed to providing the best care by the best people. Our hospice team supports both patients and families so that the patient’s choices are honored while providing care in the comfort of the patient’s home, nursing home or assisted living center.
Wherever you call home
Regardless of where service is provided, Doctor's Hospice focuses on pain and symptom management. Hospice care can be provided in any place you call home: a nursing home, certified family homes, assisted living, or the home you’ve lived in your entire life.
Doctors Who Care
At Doctor's Hospice our focus is also on celebrating the life of the patient and making every moment and every memory more valuable. We offer compassionate care with the utmost dignity and respect.
