What is Hospice Care?

Hospice care provides patients whose life expectancy is measured in months, weeks or days, rather than years, with the unique experience to celebrate life, to be comfortable and to enjoy the time they have, however limited. We allow our patients to be in control of their care and live out their lives in dignity. For a list of services, click here.

The Hospice Team

Hospice of the Western Reserve has a team of caregivers that wraps around the patient and the family. Team members include hospice physician, nurse, nursing assistants, social workers, spiritual care, pharmacist, bereavement counselors and volunteers. The hospice team works with the patient’s physician to provide the best care possible. We constantly assess our patients’ needs, and we value input from loved ones regarding the plan of care. Grief and loss counselors work with families before and for at least 13 months after the death of their loved one to help them move through the grief process.
