THREE OAKS HOSPICE FOCUSES ON CARE, DIGNITY AND COMFORT RATHER THAN CURING.
We listen, care and serve to deliver comprehensive care tailored to the wishes and needs of patients and their families. Pain and symptom management with emotional and spiritual support is provided to patients and their loved ones. Services are available to patients with life limiting illnesses of any race, religion or age.
Hospice offers experienced counsel to families making end-of-life decisions. It provides affordable access to quality care and offers significant value. Hospice also offers practical help in managing day-to-day living and compassionate alternatives.
At the foundation of hospice care is a team of skilled professionals and trained volunteers that provide physical, emotional and spiritual comfort to persons with life-limiting illnesses. The hospice philosophy respects the values and choices of the patient and family and supports the patient’s family during the caring and the grieving process.
Our bereavement program offers spiritual and emotional support to family members after the death of their loved one for 13 months. The amount of contact is determined by the needs and wishes of the patient’s family.
Palliative care means comfort
PALLIATIVE CARE IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES AND FOCUSES ON RELIEVING THE SYMPTOMS AND STRESS OF SERIOUS ILLNESSES.
Our goal is to listen, care and serve through the early identification and assessment of needs related to the spirit, soul and body. Palliative care means the management of pain and other distressing symptoms that incorporates medical, nursing, psychosocial, and spiritual care according to the needs, values, beliefs, and culture or cultures of the patient and his or her family. The evaluation and treatment is patient-centered, with a focus on the central role of the family unit in decision-making.
Palliative Care assumes primary responsibility for the patient’s ongoing care needs, collaboratively with other specialists and primary care providers to develop an integrated care plan that includes ongoing disease-oriented therapies as well as the palliative care interventions and support.
