Our CNA's assist with activitied of daily living including personal care such as bathing, dressing, and light household tasks. 

The Hospice Social Worker is responsible for the overall support of the patient and family. He/she may assist with financial planning, advance directives, as well as emotional support and counseling.

The Hospice Chaplain is responsible for providing spiritual support to all patient and family members in need. The chaplain may serve as a bridge between the patient/family and their personal house of worship. The chaplain also offers prayer and scripture readings to the patient and family as requested.

The Bereavement Coordinator offers support through counseling and can assist with preparation for rituals. The Bereavement specialist will continue to follow up with the family after death of a patient for 13 months.

The Hospice Volunteer fills a very special roll in hospice care. The volunteer may provide support or any other reasonable request that will support the patient and family in their time of need. Volunteers may also donate their time assisting with spending quality time with our families.
