A diagnosis of terminal illness for a loved one can send you into an emotional tailspin. But there is real comfort in knowing that the level of dignified care he or she can receive nearby is unsurpassed anywhere.
Excela hospice care is provided by highly skilled and intensively trained professionals, who work closely with both the patient and family members. The patient’s plan of care is individually designed based on your physician’s orders and the overall assessment made by our hospice care team and supervised by our medical director. Care typically includes symptom control and pain management along with other support services – physical, emotional, psychosocial, spiritual and practical. After the death of a loved one, our bereavement coordinator keeps in touch for up to a year.
Although patients with cancer make up a large part of our hospice population, we also treat people with other terminal illnesses, such as Parkinson’s, lung disease, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Compassionate, comprehensive care that provides both comfort and dignity for your loved one so the time you have together can be spent more comfortably. That’s Excela hospice care.
