When a loved one receives a diagnosis that requires hospice care, you need a team of healthcare professionals who can help you make the right decisions to keep your family member as comfortable and healthy as possible.
Compassus is proud to offer compassionate and culturally appropriate hospice care to patients and their families. With services that span physical, emotional and even spiritual counseling, we are here for families across Northern Arizona.
Our staff will travel to nursing homes, hospice care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, or to a patient’s home if they are more comfortable in that setting.
We pride ourselves on providing the benefits that are most important to caregivers and patients, including the following:
- Around the clock access to care
- Supplied medical equipment, including wheelchairs or hospital beds
- Medication and personal care supplies
- Complete coordination with personal physicians and other healthcare givers that ensures the appropriate treatment course is followed
In addition, we offer caregivers the information they need to navigate the sometimes difficult journey involved with caring for a patient entering hospice care, including:
- Hospice aides
- Spiritual outreach including Native American Traditions
- We Honor Veterans program
- Grief support groups for both patients and caregivers
- Respite care for family caregivers
Our goal is to help you make well-informed decisions. Call our local office to learn about your options.
Did you know that hospice is fully covered by Medicare? That’s right, you can rest assured that nursing services, medications, and necessary supplies and equipment are covered by Medicare when there is a diagnosis requiring hospice care.
Palliative care is an extra layer of support to manage the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. It does not signal that a person is giving up hope for recovery. Studies show that people receiving palliative care experience fewer hospitalizations, improved pain management and better quality of life. It also helps families navigate the health system to get the practical and emotional help they need.
Each day, hospice volunteers touch the lives of our patients and their families. Whether reading to a patient, preparing a meal for a family or cleaning up around the house, each gesture makes a meaningful impact on those we serve.
Whether you volunteer behind the scenes at the office or one-on-one with families, you are a valuable member of our hospice team. All volunteers receive free training at a local office.
