Well Care Hospice
Empowering you to live life on your terms.
Well Care Hospice delivers physical and emotional comfort to patients and their families when it matters most. We provide our patients with a skilled team of caring professionals to ensure they receive excellent medical, emotional, and spiritual care, as well as a variety of life-enhancing services.
By allowing Well Care to provide hospice services, families can empower their loved ones to live life on their terms. With the comfort and assistance that Well Care provides, patients often feel well enough to spend more time with their family and friends, and studies confirm they will live longer as well. Choosing not to pursue hospice services, or waiting until the last minute to do so, can result in a more stressful and uncomfortable experience for patients and their families.
Well Care Hospice utilizes a team-oriented approach and provides expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual comfort, expressly tailored to each patient's needs and wishes. Support will also be provided for the patient's family members. At the center of hospice care is the belief that everyone had the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that their families will receive the necessary assistance to allow them to do so.
Well Care Hospice Services May Include
- Hospice Physician (note that you can still see your personal doctor as well)
- Registered Nurse (RN)
- Medical Social Worker
- Hospice Aide
- Trained Volunteers
