That commitment is expressed in our promise to you and your loved one
At Ascension Hospice, we are very proud of the medically directed, team oriented care we provide to each of our patients. We work closely with the professionals involved in your case to design the best plan of care and support possible for each patient and their loved ones. Teams will vary depending on your specific needs, but typically include: Physicians,. Nurse, Qualified Hospice Aides, Social workers, Chaplains and Spiritual Counselors, Bereavement Coordinators and Volunteers. Ascension Hospice also provides diagnosis related medications, medical equipment and supplies necessary to promote the highest degree of comfort at home or in other hospice settings. The majority of hospice care is provided in the patient's home, with family and friends acting as caregivers. If there is no residence, the agency can provide care in nursing homes or other types of residential facilities. If a patient requires inpatient care in order to address severe symptoms or to provide respite for a caregiver, we have relationships with hospitals and nursing home facilities throughout our service area, allowing patients to be served in their own communities.
