Mission Statement

Trinity Hospice’s mission is to provide dignity and quality of life through death and beyond with compassion, passion and commitment. Focus of care is directed toward patient goals for the remainder of life and is adjusted and refocused as the condition of the patient changes. Nurses, social workers, home health aides, volunteers, bereavement counselors, chaplains, hospice physicians and management of Trinity Hospice provide a dynamic, holistic interdisciplinary team to serve the patient, family, caregiver and significant other which is recognized as the unit of care." The Trinity Hospice team will continuously strive to meet and exceed the unique and very individualized spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of the "patient/unit of care" during the dying process, continuing through the bereavement (thirteen months) period that follows the death of the patient.

Description

Hospice care is patient centered and patient directed. It is one of the best examples in health care of collaboration by an interdisciplinary team dedicated to meeting the needs of the patient and family. In consultation with the patient, his or her loved ones, primary caregiver, and the patient’s own physician, the hospice team prepares an individual plan of care based on patient and family needs and goals. Direct care is provided by the primary caregiver, if available, and augmented by the hospice team. Care is provided wherever the patient calls home.

Hospice also provides medications related to comfort and the terminal diagnosis, some supplies, and durable medical equipment needed. Hospice is designed to support the care that the patient’s primary caregiver provides.

The Trinity Hospice team works together with you to develop a plan of care that meets your needs and provides you and your caregivers with care and support. The following are the services offered by each of the team members:
