At St. Bernardine Hospice Care, each of our care providers is focused on providing excellent medical care to patients who are terminally ill. Our nurses and other staff work closely with patients and their family members to determine goals, manage pain and decrease other uncomfortable symptoms of the underlying disease. Our history throughout the community is one of quality care and compassion.
Hospice care combines physical care with emotional, spiritual and social services for the patient and family members. Hospice service seeks to improve comfort and quality of life for the terminally ill patient. Interdisciplinary hospice staff provides medical care, including pain medications, as well as emotional support to improve a terminally ill patient’s quality of life.
Volunteering at St. Bernardine Hospice Care is a great opportunity for individuals who are filled with the desire to care for others. Our compassionate volunteers help share the load with our staff and with family caregivers.
