Their mission is to educate the community in hopes to reach a higher level of awareness regarding care towards end of life.
What is hospice? Hospice is a combination of healthcare and services designed to meet the special needs of patients living with a life-limiting illness and their loved ones.
Hospice does not mean giving up. Hospice care shifts the focus to the patient who has a disease rather than the disease of the patient. Hospice care does not speed up or slow down the dying process. It accepts death as a natural and inevitable process.
St. Jacob Hospice provides progressive comfort care that specializes in addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering of patients and families who have chosen to forego curative treatment.
The St. Jacob Hospice staff consists of the attending physician, hospice medical director, registered nurses, social workers, spiritual counselors, home health aides and trained volunteers. They are always prepared to address the patient’s needs on medical, functional, emotional and spiritual levels.
- Services include:
- Pain Management
- On Call Nursing
- Home Health Aide Visits For Personal Care Bereavement Counseling
- Emotional and Spiritual Support
- Hospice Approved Medications & Equipment
Routine Home Care is the most common level of hospice care and is provided wherever a patient calls home. Home may be a nursing home, an assisted or independent living residence or traditional home setting. During routine home care, the St. Jacob Hospice team will provide care and support to their patients, their families and caregivers. Their team will also help to train caregivers so that they are comfortable providing day-to-day care.
Hospice care can dramatically reduce the amount of pain an suffering experienced by a patient and their loved ones. The staff at St. Jacob Hospice focuses on the individual as well as their family’s needs in order to achieve comfort, quality and dignity towards end of life.
