Hospice is a philosophy of care that has been in place since the Middle Ages. Hospice provides care and support to terminally ill patients and their families. This care and support continues beyond the death of the patient with bereavement services for families and friends.
Hospice is not less care, but different care. The focus of hospice is not on the disease, but on the symptoms. The dignity of the patient and the patients quality of life are of paramount importance.
The Hospice Team is made up of people from a variety of disciplines who meet the different needs of the patient. Physicians, nurses, home health aides, social workers, trained volunteers, clergy and therapists all combine their skills to ensure the best service to the patient and the patients family.
Under the direction of your physician, a plan of care dealing with the medical, social, emotional and spiritual needs are implemented by the Hospice Team. Included in this plan are issues that affect the family, such as bereavement counseling.
The patient, of any age, is in the stages of an advanced disease where the physician and medical director concur that there is a limited life expectancy.
A patient is under the care of a physician.
Patients, family or significant others desire and agree to receive services from Hospice and sign a consent form.
The patient has a primary caregiver in the home, or plan for care when they can no longer be alone.
Medicare and Medicaid, as well as many private insurance companies, include Hospice care as a benefit.
Hospice of Salem County will provide care if needed, regardless of insurance coverage or the ability to pay.
