When doctors predict a patient has six months or less to live, they often say there’s nothing more that can be done. Yet Transitions HospiceCare can do many things to increase comfort, peace-of-mind and opportunities to help those final months be lived more fully, wherever the patient calls home.
Transitions HospiceCare is designed to meet physical, emotional and spiritual needs and wishes of the patient and family, with services provided by a compassionate, expert team working together to meet goals of care. Our extensive services include:
Expert medical care – An attending physician supervises the overall care plan. Registered nurses make regularly scheduled visits and are available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Prescriptions, equipment and supplies – Most medications, equipment and supplies related to the terminal illness are included and are delivered right to the patient’s home.
Emotional and spiritual support – The entire family has access to counseling from our social workers and spiritual care from our chaplains.
Assistance with daily living – Our home health aides assist with bathing, grooming, changing bed linens and other activities of everyday life related directly to the patient.
Companionship and respite – Specially trained volunteers provide companionship to patients, run errands for the family or give family caregivers a break.
