Spending time with an elderly Hospice Patient can be like taking a trip back in time. Often one of the biggest wishes of a Brookdale Hospice patient, is to have someone listen to his or her stories. We have had patients who served during World War II, were children during the depression and have witnessed all the great changes of the twentieth century. If tales of bygone eras intrigue you and you also have a compassionate heart, join our team as a friendly visitor to a Hospice patient.
About Brookdale Hospice
995 Old Eagle School Rd, Wayne, PA 19087, US
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.
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.
