Comfort Hospice exists to enhance the quality of life for patients and families dealing with a life limiting illness.
What is our philosophy?
At Comfort Hospice we take a palliative approach to hospice care. This means that we strive to provide care for the “entirety” of a person nearing the end of their life’s journey. Providing care and support on a medical, social, and spiritual level for both the individual and their family unit : the “whole person”. We believe in a hospice philosophy of wholly caring for the patient and alleviating the symptoms of this painful life’s phase: which then subsequently relieves suffering, improves quality of life and maintains well-deserved dignity.
“Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort ALWAYS.”
Our interdisciplinary teams includes doctors, chaplains, nurses, social workers, hospice aides, and volunteers which care for and maintain each individual’s needs. Whether the need is medical, social or spiritual, our team approach finds its foundation on trusted relationships with the patient, family, and caregivers.
Our staff not only has a vast array of educational credentials but also has decades upon decades combined years of hands-on and direct-care experience as providers in the geriatric and end-of-life fields. We understand what it means to spend your days and nights caring for, and losing a loved one. As such, we take pride in our work and consider it an honor to care for each of our hospice patients.
Our philosophy acknowledges that each person has lived a precious and full life, and we value their past, while preparing for the reality that is to come. Death is a universal fact of life and dying is a natural process. Even so, facts of life are often most difficult to accept. Knowing this, we are available to assist those nearing the end of life, and their families and caregivers, who are in need of refuge and personalized care. We pride ourselves on creating a system of care designed to restore dignity and provide a sense of personal fulfillment to the dying. By providing for all aspects of end-of-life care, (including supplies and equipment at no cost), we are able to help place the focus where it belongs: on the individual & their loved ones. For us, it’s ALWAYS about the quality of our heart-felt and experienced care. Here at Comfort Hospice, we “cure sometimes, treat often, comfort ALWAYS”.
