Brookdale’s Mission is...Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
Every day is an opportunity for Brookdale associates to deeply connect with people in a profound and personal way. For our residents, we provide comfortable lifestyles and caring environments, with opportunities to improve wellness, fulfill lifelong wishes, and stay connected with friends and loved ones. And for those seeking help and information about senior living, we offer answers to their questions and solutions for meeting the unique and individual needs of each resident and their family.
It all starts with listening to and understanding the unmet needs of those we are talking with; their hopes and uncertainties for themselves or for loved ones. Then we partner with them to determine a solution designed to help enrich their lives. We believe that growing older doesn’t mean the options for enjoying life have to shrink. Our philosophy is that we’re all aging, but that should never keep us from living.
The philosophy at Brookdale Hospice is that life is much more than physical health; it also includes the health of the human spirit. When physical health begins to fail, the nurturing of the spirit becomes critical for maintaining the dignity of the individual.
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 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.
Our Hospice partners with seniors and their families to customize an entire hospice care plan as it relates to the terminal illness. In short, our hospice team is responsible for knowing and understanding the full spectrum of the patient’s entire medical circumstances and its management and helping the senior and their family remain comfortable and well care throughout their hospice experience. Although Hospice services can be provided on an intermittent basis, staff is available around the clock, seven days per week to address urgent needs. Hospice services are covered under Medicare, Medicaid and many private insurance plans.
Hospice touches many lives as they near the end, with compassion and respect, helping people live well until they die with dignity. If you or a loved one are facing end of life issues, call Brookdale Hospice for a full explanation of the care and services we provide.
