Spiritual Counselor

As part of the hospice healthcare team, Hospice Chaplains make Spiritual Care a priority. Chaplains offer open, sensitive, and non-judgmental presence and an acceptance of different beliefs, cultures and values. It is our goal to support every family with as much compassion and care as possible. Being able to walk with someone as they die is an incredible gift. We recognize this gift and respect life in all its stages and transitions. Our hope is to share in this incredibly sacred time in such a way as to provide spiritual healing, purpose and meaning honoring your special loved one entrusted to our care.
Issues of meaning, spiritual pain, forgiveness, hope, and relatedness become more focused during terminal illness. Supportive presence, listening, and appropriate intervention given by a Hospice Chaplain can help make this time a blessed time.

Bereavement Counselor

Grief may be experienced in response to physical losses, such as death, or in response to symbolic or social losses, such as divorce or loss of a job. The grief experience can be affected by one’s history and support system. Taking care of yourself and accessing the support of friends and family can help you cope with your grief experience.
There is no right way to grieve. It is an individual process and a natural part of life. Life won’t be the same after a loss, but experiencing your grief will allow you to adjust to life after loss.
Grief lasts as long as it takes to adjust to the changes in your life after your loss. It can be for months, or even years. Grief has no timetable; thoughts, emotions, behaviors and other responses may come and go.
Services provided can be: Phone contact, short-term counseling, support groups, educational forums, written information, and memorial services.
We provide bereavement services for over one year after the passing of the patient to the family and caregivers if that’s what it takes because no matter what;

PT/OT/ST

Physical Therapist
• A physical therapist is a medical professional licensed to assess and treat impairments and functional limitations. PTs are qualified to recommend appropriate medical and assistive devices for patients (e.g., shower chairs, braces, walkers, canes, wheelchairs) or specific exercises. Educating the patient about his/her condition is also a vital part of the PT’s role.

Occupational Therapist
• An occupational therapist may also recommend adaptive equipment, such as reachers, dressing aids, special dishes and utensils, positioning splints, etc. Both the OT and OTA ensure that the patient is equipped to handle regular work and household activities like dressing, cooking, bathing or writing.

Speech Therapist/Pathologist or SLP
• Establish verbal/non-verbal communication between the patient and caregivers/family.

Volunteers/Alt Therapies

Volunteers
Our volunteers provide all types of services. Most importantly, they provide companionship. Volunteers from the community affirm the sense of local community support for the dying that is essential in hospice care.
Alternative Therapies
We offer different types of alternative therapies for the comfort and happiness of our patients and their families.
  • Pet Therapy - A dog is man’s bestfriend and closest companion sometimes. Often, dogs have a way to communicate with the terminally ill better than family and caregivers.
  • Aromatherapy - At the request of patients and families, we can use essential oils and other naturopathic remedies
  • Message Therapy - Another way to relieve aches and pains is through massage rather than just pain medication.
  • Music Therapy - Music is another therapy that instantly remind us of the times when we were young and happy. Rather it be a volunteer playing an instrument for a patient or just turning on the radio, some patients enjoy the sound of music.
  • Art Therapy - Art allows patients to express  their feelings and themselves in another way ...

Dietician

  • Understand that we cannot force patients to eat, especially if they are are at the end-stage of their terminal disease; most patients are not hungry because their body is shutting down.
  • Registered dietitians (RDs) work collaboratively to make nutrition, hydration, and feeding recommendations. RDs assess patients’ nutritional needs, offer nutritional counseling, and provide meals that reduce constipation and other side effects of medication and treatment. Dietitians also encourage patients and families to suggest or supply their own favorite meals, such a mom’s home-cooked chicken or dad’s special cake. People will generally eat more if they can eat familiar favorites and those they regard as comfort foods. RDs also help educate patients and their families about end of life care choices. RDs are a valuable asset to an institution’s ethics committee. When facing difficult decisions it is often reassuring for families to hear similar messages from multiple care team members. Often the RDs familiarity with practical aspects food and fluid at the end of life, including chewing and swallowing problems and cessation of thirst and hunger make them best able to address families concerns and answer questions. RDs may find that they need to answer the same question many times. The complexity of the issue demands that topics be approached and sorted through from multiple perspectives, always assuring that consistent answers are provided so that patients and their families feel secure in making sensitive end of life food and fluid decisions.
