About Legacy Hospice

Location:

2322 Blue Stone Hills Drive, Suite 220, Harrisonburg, VA 22801, US

Mission Statement

Legacy is focused primarily on comfort and pain management for our patients. Our Key Objectives: Keep patients from unnecessary hospital visits - all too often we see patients nearing the end of their lives unnecessarily traveling to and from the hospital, often via traumatizing ambulance rides. These visits are incredibly disrupting for patients, their caregivers and families and frequently result in negative physical outcomes. Instead, our team of clinicians allows patients to be cared for wherever they call home - providing the comfort and pain management needed to weather any physical disruptions. Engage in frank conversations - Like advance directives, we are firm believers in asking the right questions and knowing how to best achieve the goals.

Description

Legacy Hospice provides care to all age groups during the final stages of life, including children, adults, and the elderly. Our patients will have an experienced team of physicians, registered nurses, certified nurse aides, medical social workers, counselors, and trained volunteers available to help patients and their family members .

Our physician and Legacy staff work with patients to set up a comprehensive plan of care to manage symptoms and assess the needs of the family. Our patient's family or another caregiver will be with the patient, and members of our team will make regular visits to ensure their comfort. A nurse and a physician are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week to give patient and family support and care.

Even though a physician is a part of the Legacy team, our patient's can choose to use their regular physician to direct their care. Legacy will work closely with our patient's regular physician to give the care that is needed.

You can also apply directly online by visiting www.legacy-hospice.com and filling out a volunteer application under the "Volunteer" section of the site.
