Helping Seniors Enjoy a Better Quality of Life
The philosophy at Brookdale Hospice is that life is much more than physical health; it also includes the health of the human spirit. When physical health begins to fail, the nurturing of the spirit becomes critical for maintaining the dignity of the individual.
Hospice is a philosophy of care focused on comfort and quality of life at the end of life. It is designed to treat the whole person emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically by providing comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. As part of the process, family members also receive care and support – all provided by a team of specially trained professionals and volunteers. Bereavement services for family continue for one year after the patient has died.
Brookdale Hospice offers a full spectrum of care designed to respect the dignity of the individual. Our care is skilled and compassionate in its delivery with the goal of providing comfort and freedom from pain. At the same time, it aims to provide the patient with as much independence and control as possible, for as long as possible.
Our hospice team partners with seniors and their families to customize an entire hospice care plan as it relates to the terminal illness. In short, our hospice team is responsible for knowing and understanding the full spectrum of the patient’s entire medical circumstances and its management and helping the senior and their family remain comfortable and well care throughout their hospice experience. Although hospice services can be provided on an intermittent basis, staff is available around the clock, seven days per week to address urgent needs. Hospice services are covered under Medicare, Medicaid and many private insurance plans.
Hospice touches many lives as they near the end, with compassion and respect, helping people live well until they die with dignity. If you or a loved one are facing end of life issues, call Brookdale Hospice for a full explanation of the care and services we provide.
