Hospice Program :: Metro West Medical Center

Hospice Program :: Metro West Medical Center: Hospice is a team-oriented approach to caring for individuals during the challenging journey of managing a life-limiting illness. Care is given to the individual wherever they prefer. It may be at home, in a nursing home or in an assistive living environment. Care is focused on maintaining comfort and dignity, not on curing. The interdisciplinary team caring for the patient and family consists of the following:

Patient’s Personal Physician
Hospice Medical Director
Registered Nurses
Home Health Aides
Social Workers
Spiritual Counselor – Clergy
Trained Volunteers
Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists, if needed

The team develops a care plan with the patient and family that includes expert pain and symptom management, emotional and spiritual support; as well as coordination of contracted specialty medications and assistive medical equipment. Nurses are available 24 hours per day to help meet the patient’s needs and support the family members and friends caring for the patient.
