AseraCare Hospice is dedicated to focusing our resources in service to the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of our employees, patients and families with a sense of compassion, urgency and customer service. We strive to preserve the dignity of death for our patients and families so that, to the best of our ability, no one will die alone or in pain. At AseraCare, we have created a culture that is committed to the alleviation of human suffering which finds expression through ongoing gentle acts of kindness, empathy and compassion. We aspire to serve, educate and support our local communities and referral sources as to the benefits, dignity and nobility of end-of-life-care.
Hospice exists to provide care for a person with a life-limiting prognosis. It is a medically-directed, interdisciplinary team-managed program of service that focuses on the patient and family as the unit of service. Hospice care is palliative, rather than curative, with an emphasis on pain management and symptom control, so that a person may live the last days of life fully, with dignity and comfort, at home or in a homelike setting.
Volunteers play a very significant role on this caring team. Volunteers can be direct or indirect, depending on their preference and experience. Direct care volunteers work with patients, family and the care team. Indirect volunteers perform a variety of assistive services necessary to aid in the quality care of the our patients and their families. Both are vital to the success of the program and those we serve.
