Meridian Hospice shall be determined to preserve the comfort and wellbeing of hospice patients while extending compassionate support to family members. Your whole household is going through dynamic changes and we will be here to help you cope. Our team is prepared to guide you, help you, keep you company and provide you with the sound counsel regarding hospice situations with the utmost discretion and applied sensitivity to your needs.
Hospice treats the patient, not the disease. The focus is on care, not cure. The medical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs are addressed of the patient and family by a team of Hospice professionals and volunteers.
Care may be provided in the home, long-term care facility, assisted living facility or in a hospital setting.? The patient and family are included in the care provided. Hospice will help the patient and family by including them in choices about end-of-life issues and will enable you to have greater control over these choices. Bereavement care is provided to the family for thirteen months following the death.
Hospice provides palliative care and comfort when cure is no longer an option. Hospice will help you live as fully and comfortable as possible by offering pain and symptom control.
