Addressing Your Clinical Needs

Clinical Care

The comfort that comes from staying at home or in a home-like setting is typically only achieved when clinical care is also provided. While a patient may not be actively undergoing treatment for their terminal illness, managing pain and mitigating symptoms sometimes requires expert care. Hospice clinical care includes:

  • medical care via physician and registered nurse
  • 24-hour on-call nursing
  • symptom and pain control
  • prescription drug assistance
  • home medical equipment
  • home health care and volunteer respite

The reassurance of on-call nursing, assistance in managing pain and the companionship of volunteers allow Hospice patients to feel safe and cared for, instead of lonely and scared. With professional caregivers addressing the clinical needs of the patient, family members can focus on spending quality time with their loved one and making the most of every moment.
