Imagine feeling all alone. Imagine approaching the end of your life and spending most of your days in a nursing home surrounded by lots of people but none of them are your people. At Brookdale one of our most important commitments is to NO ONE DYING ALONE. Sometimes a patient has no family. Sometimes they do, but those people are far away or can only visit them at night because of work. Days can be very long when you are confined to a bed or wheelchair and have very little to do. But there is something YOU can do. You can become a friendly visitor and bring some cheer and a bit of the outside world to our patients. Contact us about joining our team.

Mission Statement

Brookdale's mission "Eriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity," shapes us into the industry leader we are today. This is reinforced by our culture which is grounded in the common themes of Passion, Courage and Partnership. Passion means that serving seniors is our calling. We exceed expectations, have fun and celebrate life every day. Courage means we do what is right even when no one is watching. Partnership means we are all connected. We work and learn together-and we treat one another with respect, These themes are built on a foundation of trust. We build this trust by listening, understanding and partnering to create solutions that change lives.

Description

Hospice is a philosophy of care focused on comfort and quality of life at the end of life. It is designed to treat the whole person emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically by providing comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. As part of the process, family members also receive care and support - all provided by a team of specially trained professionals and volunteers. Bereavement services for family continue for one year after the patient has died.

Brookdale's Hospice offers a full spectrum of care designed to respect the dignity of the individual. Our care is skilled and compassionate in its delivery with the goal of providing comfort and freedom from pain. At the same time, it aims to provide the patient with as much independence and control as possible, for as long as possible.
