At Hospice Select, we are very proud of the medically-directed, team-oriented care we provide each of our patients. We work closely with the other professionals involved in your case to design the best plan of care and support we can for each patient and their loved ones. Teams will vary depending on your specific needs but typically include:
Qualified Hospice Aides
Chaplains & Spiritual Counselors
Bereavement Coordinators & Volunteers
Hospice Select also provides diagnosis-related medications, medical equipment and supplies necessary to promote comfort at home or in other hospice settings.
The majority of hospice care is provided in the patient's home, with family and friends acting as caregivers. If there is no residence, the agency can provide care in nursing homes or other types of residential facilities. If a patient requires inpatient care in order to address severe symptoms or to provide respite for a caregiver, we have relationships with hospitals and nursing home facilities throughout our service area, allowing patients to be served in their own communities.
Not all problems occur between the hours of 8 and 5. We have a triage team available 24/7. When you call in the evenings or on weekends, you will always be able to speak directly with a nurse. A social worker and chaplain are also available in case the need is not medical in nature. If an evening or weekend visit is needed, you can count on us to be there for you.
