Who is on Your Care Team? The Beacon of Hope Hospice Care Team is made up of trained professionals who put individual patient and family needs first. • Hospice physicians are collaborating with your primary physician to create the best plan of care. • Nurses are experienced in pain control and symptom management, to give you the support you need. • CNA’s help with personal care, such as bathing and personal hygiene, as well as light household duties if assistance is needed. • Social Workers and counselors are there to assist in meeting the emotional and supportive needs. • Chaplains offer spiritual support. • Bereavement specialists provide grief support for the family and loved ones. • Volunteers are there for many reasons to help the patients and family at this difficult time. Your Own Care Team is also a large part of your time with hospice. Facing illness with family by your side makes the time left a little easier.
We at Beacon of Hope Hospice would be happy to meet with you wherever you call home to discuss your personalized plan of care and make all the necessary arrangements with your physician once you have elected to be part of the hospice program.
