Community Hospice is committed to providing supportive, palliative, and loving care to terminally ill clients and their families through an interdisciplinary team.
This philosophy of hope is at the heart of the hospice movement and at the heart of the care we deliver to every patient. Community Home Care & Hospice believes that hospice is about hope. It’s the belief that quality of life can and should be profoundly enriched at all junctures. It’s the hope that life’s conclusion can be experienced with profound dignity and enriched with the empowerment that control and choice brings.
Every day hospice works to improve the quality of life of those with a life-limiting illness. We focus on controlling pain and managing the symptoms of disease while maintaining the highest quality of life. It’s about enriching the days and months that remain. This translates into more days free of pain, days to share with loved ones, days where life can triumph over illness.
Each hospice patient comes to us with his own unique wishes and hopes. The physical, emotional and spiritual circumstances faced by patients and their families vary considerably. So above all, hospice respects patient choices offering care that gives individuals options of how to live the remainder of their lives. We offer specific levels of care including services provided in a patient’s home, hospital or nursing home. As much as possible we help patients face the conclusion of life on their own terms.
Hospice encompasses not only the patient but also cares for the family with emotional and respite support as well as bereavement services. We encourage an environment where patients have opportunities to express their feelings and to share and relish the time that remains. Beyond this, we counsel families on how to relate to and understand their loved one as the end of life’s journey nears. Our Hospice Family Care brings comfort to those facing the passing of a loved one. Becoming an extended member of our patient’s family early on enables us to be a stronger support system for the family as the illness progresses. Often, we find our patients comforted knowing we will be there for their families in those emotional days to come.
Above all, although life’s end is natural, we encourage a richness of spirit because at Community Home Care & Hospice, we believe it’s about living.
