Hospice is always helping!

May 14, 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to reshape society, it’s changing the ways people receive hospice care, and adding to the emotional burdens of their care-giving family members.

For people who have a terminal illness with a limited prognosis, hospice supports them with palliative, end-of-life care to help them feel more comfortable.

A typical team is comprised of a physician, nurse, nurse’s aides, social workers, spiritual guide or chaplain, and other volunteers to help provide companionship. Hospice not only cares for the primary patient, it also gives family caregivers a form of respite, and provides them with grief counseling as the health condition worsens.

While coronavirus has disrupted many regularly occurring events in recent weeks, hospice teams have been finding new ways to connect with patients and their families.

We salute our hospice partners as they continue to serve in all circumstances.
