Hospice Care at Livingston HealthCare
What Is Hospice?
Livingston HealthCare Hospice has served the local community for over 20
years. Hospice is not a place, but a concept of care, and whenever possible,
hospice care is offered at home. Care provided in the home allows patients
to live their final days to the fullest, surrounded by their loved ones.
Families can be together when it means the most, supporting the patient's
final days with peace, comfort, and dignity.
Meet Our Caring Hospice Team
Typically, a family member serves as the primary caregiver and, when appropriate,
helps make decisions for the patient. Members of our Livingston hospice
care staff make regular visits to assess the patient and provide additional
care, and staff is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are able
to provide a wide range of services from physical and occupational therapy
to family counseling. The hospice team is made up of the patient's
family, caregivers, physician, and other professionals.
Other members of a patient’s care team may include:
- Registered nurse case manager
- Licensed practical nurse
- Home health aide
- Volunteer coordinator
- Medical social worker
- Bereavement coordinator
- Spiritual care coordinator
