Hospice Care Team

The Hospice Care Team comprises a full complement of professionals who attend to the physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing of the patient and their family. The hospice team works with the patient and family to create a plan of care that outlines the actions and goals of the patient’s individualized care. For most patients and their caregivers, a huge bonus is that members of this team visit the patient rather than the patient having to go to a doctor’s office or clinic. Visits by team members are based on the patient and their family’s needs as outlined in the care plan and medical situations that arise during the course of the illness.

Director of Patient Care Services


The Director of Patient Care Services coordinates your care by working along side our care professionals, making every effort to see  you receive the highest quality of care possible.

Medical Director

We want you to have the ability to make informed decisions about your healthcare needs. Our medical director works to identify goals, positive interventions and care choices for your future healthcare needs.

RN Case Manager

A Registered Nurse Case Manager (RN) is assigned to the patient to assist with pain and symptom control and to monitor the patient’s changing needs. For those receiving hospice care at home or in a care facility, the RN Case Manager visits at least once a week and more often if needed.  A hospice nurse is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to give the patient and their family support and assistance whenever needed.

LVN's & Home Health Aids

A Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) or Certified Home Health Aide visits the patient two or three times a week to take vital signs (blood pressure, temperature) and assist with bathing and personal care.

Social Worker


Hospice Social Workers are key to helping you coordinate with healthcare providers and navigating supplemental programs and resources; many that may be available to you through other providers or agencies.

Spiritual Care

A Spiritual Caregiver can be a minister of any faith, and his or her goal is to provide spiritual consolation and guidance to the patient, their families, caregivers, community, and to the hospice team, as requested. The Hospice Chaplain typically visits the patient within a week of the initiation of Hospice Care to complete a spiritual assessment and respond to spiritual requests from the patient. The Chaplain also meets with family and caregivers to assess their needs and concerns. The participation of a Chaplain in the treatment plan is entirely up to the patient and caregiver(s).

Family Support Services

Hospice Grief and Bereavement Counselors provide support and counseling to patients, families, and caregivers, as needed.  Support groups and classes are also offered for adults, teens, and children.  Families have access to Grief Counseling and Bereavement Support for 13 months following a patient’s death.


The types of support provided to patients and their loved ones by Hospice Volunteers include running errands, preparing light meals, sitting with the hospice patient when caretakers need or want to take time for themselves, and lending emotional support and companionship to patients and their loved ones.  Volunteer schedules are arranged as requested by patient and family.
