Why Excellence Hospice Care
BECAUSE WE ARE ALL ABOUT YOU
Excellence Hospice Care is dedicated to creating an environment that supports the needs and enhances the lives of our patients.
We believe in a plan for living that will ensure quality of life in a pain free environment with respect and dignity. This belief requires a dedicated team that will provide our patients with the compassion and care they deserve.
Nursing Care Services
Registered nurses coordinates care for every patient, provide direct patient care, monitor medications and check symptoms. The nurse maintains communication with the physician as the patient's condition and treatment changes warrants.
The patient's physician approves the plan of care and works closely with the hospice team. A hospice medical director is available to the attending physician, the patient, and the hospice care team as a consultant and a resource.
Home Health Aide Services
Certified Nurses Aides provide personal care for the patient, such as bathing, shampooing, and shaving. Certified Nurse Aides also provide valuable feedback to the Team regarding their observation and the patient's needs.
Medical Social Services
The social worker evaluates the family dynamics and acts as an advocate for the patient and family in making use of community resources. The social worker also provides advice and counseling to the patient and family members during the crisis period while providing feedback to the hospice team on recommended changes.
Bereavement is the time of mourning that we all experience following a loss. The hospice care team works with the surviving family members to help them with the grieving process. Support may include a trained volunteer or counselor visiting the family at specific periods during the first year, or phone calls and/or letter contact and the opportunity for family members to participate in support groups.
