Hospice Values Each Day of Life
Every single day of life is valuable. But when you’re living with a terminal diagnosis, it’s important to know that every day can still be meaningful. You can still connect with family and friends and hospice care can help you manage your pain and discomfort. And with the right care and services, delivered by a team of hospice specialists, your days can still hold moments of joy.
That’s the goal of Brookdale’s hospice teams, to provide you and your loved ones with care, including medical, social, emotional, and even spiritual support, so you can have a better quality of life and a dignified end-of-life experience.
A Wide Range of Benefits for Both You and Your Loved Ones
You can receive hospice benefits at home, in a medical facility, or in a senior living community of your choice. Wherever you are, our caring teams will come to you and provide personalized care.
When you and your physician choose Brookdale hospice as your provider you’ll also receive:
In-Home Treatment—If you’re able and most comfortable remaining at home, our hospice teams can provide treatment in your home, delivering a wide range of in-home medical and social services.
Comprehensive Pain Management—One of the most important goals of hospice is to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible, and that can include managing pain and discomfort using different therapies and medications.
Compassionate Respite Care—Being a caregiver is a tough job. That’s why we provide respite care, which allows caregivers, whether they’re family or friends, to have a needed break so they can rest and recharge.
Personalized Treatment Plan—Hospice is not a one-size-fits-all scenario. You and your family are special in your own way, and your care should be too. That’s why we develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient.
Emotional/Spiritual Support—Weaving in care for your whole self is an integral part of hospice. From counseling to pastoral care for those who desire it, we’ll help make sure we’ll support your mind, body and spirit.
Support for Loved Ones—Your loved ones matter to you and they matter to us, too. That’s why we’ll be here for them too. We’ll help them have conversations that matter, and we’ll give them tools to navigate their own emotions.
Time for Closure—Hospice is a journey for all involved, but dealing with that journey coming to a close can benefit from some expert help. From help working through emotions to physical support, we’ll go through this journey together.
Choose Hospice from a Leader in Senior Living
Brookdale hospice teams work with you, your family, your primary care physician, and other healthcare professionals to ensure your transition from acute care to hospice care is as smooth as possible. Our care teams include medical professionals, daily-care experts like nurses and medical specialists, along with emotional and spiritual counselors who can help you and your loved ones navigate the difficult challenges that come with this unfortunate reality of life.
Our hospice teams are well trained, and you’ll often find that our staff approach hospice more as a calling than a profession. Our teams are also backed by an industry leader, as we have spent more than 40 years learning, studying, and researching best practices in senior living. In that time we’ve learned a lot about how to provide a warm, comfortable environment where seniors with difficult medical challenges can thrive.
