We’re here to help you understand and navigate hospice and palliative care.
Three Oaks offers personalized, compassionate care for those facing a life-limiting illness. Hospice and palliative care help bring peace during what can often be a challenging time.
Hospice care means peace.
Hospice care from Three Oaks Hospice focuses on symptom management and quality of life for individuals facing terminal illnesses. A team of nurses, social workers, hospice aides, volunteers, and others work together to manage pain, provide companionship, offer comfort, and ease family caregivers’ burden.
Care is physician-directed and tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Hospice care services are carried out wherever the patient lives, whether that be the patient’s home, a family member’s home, or a senior living facility where the patient resides, allowing those with a life-limiting illness to remain in a familiar setting surrounded by love and support. Care comes in the form of assistance with day-to-day living activities, symptom relief, and stress relief aimed at delivering peace during the course of care.
Palliative care means comfort.
For individuals living with a severe illness who are still undergoing care for that illness, palliative care services help improve the quality of life during treatment. The Three Oaks Hospice palliative care team focuses on symptom relief and support at any point after your diagnosis, and care is coordinated with your doctor to help you and your family cope with your illness.
Palliative care can also change over time as symptoms alter or your family’s needs change. Some patients move between palliative care and hospice care over the course of an illness depending on the specific diagnosis, the patient’s desire for continued treatment, and the expected outcome. Care decisions are made with input from the patient and any current medical providers to ensure a seamless care experience.
