It is time to call hospice when it has been determined that there is no cure for an illness, when the person with the life-limiting illness decides to stop seeking aggressive treatment or when their health is progressively declining, despite treatment. The focus of hospice is to provide pain relief and symptom management, and provide care and support to a family member or caregiver. And the Hospice Care Team. What is a Hospice Team? Hospice care is the collaboration of a dedicated team of professionals who provide comprehensive end-of-life care to those with life-limiting illnesses. The hospice team comprises an interdisciplinary group of professionals who become an extension of the patient’s family or support network. They work together to meet the medical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and families. Hospice care encourages the involvement of the patient’s family members in the plan of care. The team includes: Physicians, who works with the patient’s primary care physicians/specialists to provide a continuum of care. Skilled Nurses, who attend scheduled visits with patients. They provide quality nursing care, pain and symptom management, and make arrangements for medications, medical equipment and supplies. The skilled nurse offers education on the diagnosis, disease process and prognosis. Hospice Aides, who assist with the personal care needs of the patient, such as bathing and grooming. Chaplin Deacon Dan McGrath & Max Social Workers, who offer psychosocial support and assists in areas, such as navigating through the healthcare system, legal and financial issues, placement, mediation of family dynamics, coordination of additional community support and resources.
