How the Team Works
The Hospice Care Options team is a diverse mix of individuals that help create the needed care network for your loved ones and family members. By providing an interdisciplinary care team, Hospice Care Options is able to provide the most comprehensive and well coordinated care possible. Our physicians and staff are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. To meet some of our key players, click here. Our team includes:
Our team of highly skilled and educated physicians work one-on-one with your family physician to help create a plan. Our doctors coordinate the team members who care for each patient, the course of treatment needed and develop many different means to help control pain and manage illness.
Each of the Hospice Care Options nurses is trained in the area of pain management and patient care. Nurses serve as a contact point between the patient, his or her family and the Hospice Care team. Nurses are a wealth of knowledge and can be considered a source of wisdom, knowledge, strength and comfort. Our team of nurses helps to provide daily care and pain management.
Certified Nurse Assistants and Home Health Aides
Companionship and emotional support are two of the most important services Hospice Care Options provides. Our certified nurse assistants and home health aides help in providing both. This team also helps with daily activities and other daily responsibilities to provide individualized care for each of our patients.
The Hospice Care Options team of social workers works with patients and families to care for non-medical needs. Social workers are caring and supportive members of our team who plan with future planning, financial arrangements and emotional difficulties.
Spiritual questions and concerns are always something that the Hospice Care Options take very seriously. We have a team of Chaplains dedicated to helping patients and family answer and cope with those questions. Our Chaplains can also help plan ceremonies and plan last wishes.
