Each Hospice Care patient is assigned a hospice team. The team will provide support to the patient, primary caregiver and family. A team member will be available by phone 24-hours a day for support or visits.
The patient’s personal physician consults with a hospice care team of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, home health aides, and volunteers. Working closely together, team members treat and attend to the family and patient as a ‘unit of care.’
