OUR HOSPICE SERVICES
Our interdisciplinary Hospice team works together to meet the needs of each hospice patient and family or caregiver.
Blossom Ridge Hospice Services Include:
Our Registered Nurses (RN’s) and Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN’s) provide nursing care under the direction of the patient’s primary care physician or referring physician.
Medical Social Services:
Our Medical Social Workers help patients cope with social and emotional factors related to a medical condition or problem. They also work with the family or caregiver on dealing with the practical and emotional aspects surrounding death, dying and bereavement.
Our Medical Director works with the patient’s attending physician and the hospice team, handling medical components of patient care.
Our Volunteers provide emotional and practical support to patients and family or caregivers. This may include conversing with patients, reading to or playing games with patients, or assisting with light housework.
Spiritual Services – Our Chaplains provide direct support with spiritual issues as well as facilitate interaction and contact between the community clergy, patient and family or caregiver.
Our Bereavement Coordinator provides anticipatory counseling and bereavement support to family and caregivers. They continue to support the immediate family following death.
