HOLISTIC TEAM APPROACH

The Holy Family Hospice team is comprised of experienced administrative staff, a medical director, nurses, state tested nursing assistants, social workers, pastoral ministers, bereavement care and volunteers. Nursing support and access to other hospice services is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the hospice on-call system.

 

Medical Director

Under the direction of our Medical Director, our hospice team creates a plan that provides support for the patients and their family members by combining conventional and alternative therapies to address spiritual, emotional and physical needs.

 

In a collaborative effort, our Medical Director participates in team conferences and serves as liaison between Holy Family Hospice and physician members of the medical community. The Medical Director educates and takes part in public relations endeavors in the medical community and attends meetings and other activities that support the mission of Holy Family Hospice.

 

Nursing Team

Holy Family Hospice patient care is coordinated by an RN case manager. Services provided by the nurses include frequent visits, assessment of patient needs, medication management, and clinical education. The hospice case manager works closely with the physician to meet our patients’ changing needs and to improve their quality of life.

 

State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA)

STNAs are licensed and trained to provide patients with personal care, which includes feeding, dressing, and bathing.

 

Licensed Social Worker

Emotional support and counseling, active listening, assistance with medical decisions and financial matters, identification of community resources, and grief support are just a few of the services provided to patients and their families by our licensed social workers.

Services

Bereavement Support

Family bereavement services are provided from the time a patient is admitted until at least one year after the passing of a loved one. Our bereavement team attends the wake or funeral and offers support to families in the form of telephone calls, one-on-one counseling, group sessions, educational resource materials, newsletters, and a candle lighting service.

Pastoral Care

Patients and their families are surrounded by caring individuals who offer a sense of peace and comfort in the hospice setting. We strive to meet spiritual needs through pastoral support, communication with our patient’s religious community, assistance with memorials and funeral arrangements, and grief support.
