Did you know that hospice is fully covered by Medicare? That’s right, you can rest assured that nursing services, medications, supplies and equipment are covered when there is a diagnosis requiring hospice care.
Palliative care helps people feel better; physically, emotionally and spiritually. It focuses on improving quality of life at any stage of illness and includes support for families and caregivers.
- Managing pain and other symptoms to your desired level
- Medical social services and spiritual care
- Medical support for shortness of breath
- Reducing the side effects of medications
- Help with fatigue and sleep problems
- Managing nausea or loss of appetite
- Reducing anxiety and depression
Palliative care can begin as soon as someone is diagnosed with an illness. It does not signal that a person has given up hope for recovery or a cure.
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.
