What does Hospice of North Carolina Provide?
At Hospice of North Carolina, our care is family focused. We understand that the end-of-life journey can be demanding and stressful for everyone involved. In addition to meeting the patient’s medical needs, our hospice team works to treat the emotional and spiritual needs of the patient’s loved ones, too. We provide highly trained professionals to assess your needs and those of your family.
Hospice of North Carolina provides and pays for these services:
- All clinical staff services, including our physician Medical Director, RN Case Manager, Certified Nurse’s Aide, Medical Social worker and Chaplain. Volunteer services are also available.
- All medications associated with the terminal diagnosis for symptom control and pain relief
- All needed medical equipment, such as oxygen, a hospital bed, wheelchair and more
- Respite care as needed, through paid placement of the patient in a long-term care facility for 5 days
- 24 hour emergency on-call services
- 13 months of bereavement care for family members
You will have an experienced team of physicians, registered nurses, certified nurse aides, medical social workers, counselors, and trained volunteers available to help you and your family manage your illness.
In addition to providing end-of-life hospice care, Hospice of North Carolina also has a palliative care program. Born from the hospice movement, palliative care is a special program designed for the chronically ill and individuals faced with multiple illnesses. Unlike hospice, patients enrolled in palliative care services are not terminally ill.
