A Comprehensive Team of Professionals
A great companion and hospice care team goes beyond doctors and nurses. There are a variety of professionals who can contribute to the comfort and support of your loved one and your family. Hospice aides specialize in helping patients with personal hygiene issues. It’s common to need help bathing, brushing teeth, getting dressed, and more. A hospice aid can make sure your loved one has the help he or she needs.
Social workers take the time to understand the goals of each patient and the family dynamics involved, which are unique to each situation. If there is a full-time family caregiver, the social worker can help devise strategies to reduce stress and avoid burnout. Likewise, Chaplains and Rabbis can offer spiritual and emotional support to families and patients according to their specific spiritual focus and needs.
