Hospice care, sometimes known as end-of-life care, involves a team of health care professionals providing medical and psychological support and guidance to both you and your loved one. Typically, a hospice or medical doctor is in charge of the care, and a team of nurses, counselors, and health aids attend to your day-to-day needs. At QHC, we understand the decision to place a loved one in hospice care can be a difficult one, and we are dedicated to providing high quality, understanding care to our residents.
We aim to control pain, discomfort, and other symptoms in order for your loved one to feel as comfortable as possible. It is our mission to provide peace, comfort, and dignity to the dying process.
Hospice care generally takes place anytime during the last six months of an individual’s life. The plan of care is unique to each individual, but our end goal is always to provide comfort to you, your loved one, friends, and family during this difficult time.
Our services for hospice care include bathing, eating, moving, developing pain and anxiety management programs, creating and advance directive, organizing legal affairs, and sorting through the complex and difficult emotions tied to the dying process.
It is QHC’s belief that people come first. We are committed to patient needs and the quality of our hospice care. Our skilled, certified nurses provide high-quality assistance to both you and your loved ones in your time of need.
Comfort is imperative for people nearing the end of life, and developing a plan for physical, psychological, and social comfort that you and your loved one are comfortable with is our goal. Hospice care is a sensitive field, with many emotions involved. We strive to treat the dying process with as much respect and empathy as possible for you and your loved one.
