More about Hospice care and our organization:

At Ohio Living Home Health & Hospice, we provide the expertise and compassion that helps adults and their families live as fully as possible during an advanced illness. This is accomplished by building a team around the patient and family that includes clinical professionals, trained caregivers and volunteers. The team focuses on the physical symptoms, as well as emotional and spiritual concerns for the patient and their family members.

We enable our patients to make decisions about how they want to live out their remaining days and create memories for those who remain behind. We encourage patients to share their goals for life with us. In turn, we work with them to make those goals a reality.

Our hospice team works together to provide counseling, education and support, focusing on giving the patient control in determining their physical, mental and spiritual needs. Then the hospice team, along with the patient and family members, develop a holistic care plan that includes pain management, symptom control and bereavement support.

Description

Hospice is a special kind of caring. Hospice care is patient and family centered and seeks to provide support and comfort to those facing a life limiting illness. Volunteers play a large role in this effort by sharing their skills and interests in a manner that enriches the quality of life for those they serve.

Medicare also recognizes the importance of volunteers in the delivery of hospice care. Medicare requires that hospice utilize volunteers from their local community to augment the care the hospice agency provides. Nationally, over 100,000 people serve as hospice volunteers and give millions of hours of their time to serve terminally ill patients and their families.
