It's just not possible for one person to meet all of the needs of a seriously ill person.... so, hospice uses a "team" approach. Many people with many different skills work together for the good of the patient and the family.

Members of the Hospice team may include:

  • Physicians - Hospice Medical Director
  • Nurses - RN & LPN
  • Certified Home Health Aides
  • Medical Social Worker
  • Clergy, Spiritual and Bereavement Counseling
  • Volunteer Services and Support
  • Therapist - Physical, Occupational and Speech
  • A Dietician
  • A Pharmacist

Special attention is given to the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and family.
